New Event Series: Real People, Big Astronomy

We know that PEOPLE enable discoveries. No matter how sophisticated the machinery or large the institution, it takes many people of diverse backgrounds and talents to make big science happen. Our Real People, Big Astronomy event series will feature some of the real people working at astronomy and science facilities in Chile and the United States who enable discoveries. You will be able to watch and share on Facebook Live, and on future events, join a webinar for simultaneous translation from English to Spanish.
