Smoke signals from the distant universe
22 March 2013
On the 19 March 2013 Professor Seb Oliver gave his lecture, "Smoke signals from the distant universe," to an interested audience at the University of Kent.
A smoke – like dust obscures the view of the most distant galaxies by optical telescopes. However infrared telescopes can penetrate these dust clouds. This enables us to learn about star formation in the early universe.
This was a Joint meeting with the South East Kent Astronomical Society.
