Subject: SOAR telescope lecture - Oct. 10
I am the marketing assistant at Morehead Planetarium and Science Center. Jeff
suggested that CHAOS might be interested in attending a lecture by Dr. Wayne
Christiansen. He will be discussing his involvement with the SOAR telescope
on Monday, Oct. 10 at noon. The lecture will be held in the NASA Digital
Theater and is free to the public. The lecture is part of MPSC's Midday
Science Series. If you could let your members know about this event, we
would greatly appreciate it!
Here's a short description of the event:
Dr. Wayne Christiansen will track the 18-year-long history of his involvement
with the SOAR (Southern Astrophysical Research) telescope in Cerro Pachon,
Chile, on Monday, Oct. 10 at noon at Morehead Planetarium and Science Center.
Since its dedication in January 2004, the SOAR telescope provides superior
research capabilities for UNC-Chapel Hill and partner institutions in the
U.S. and in Brazil.
Christiansen, director of the Morehead Observatory and professor of physics
and astronomy, is the second lecturer in MPSC's Midday Science Series. The
series serves as an opportunity for UNC-Chapel Hill faculty members to share
their research with the community. For more information on the series?

The hourlong seminar is free to the public and held in the NASA Digital
Theater. For group reservations, please call Visitor Services at (919)
