Visit Lewis & Clark College Observatory - 2/4
The James H. Karle Observatory sits atop the roof of the Olin Center for Physics and Chemistry. The observatory houses several telescopes, including a research-grade instrument with a design similar to the Hubble Space Telescope. Join Professor of Physics, Stephen Tufte, for a visit to the Observatory. He will introduce you to this facility and give a brief history of Astronomy at Lewis & Clark, much of which involved research on binary star systems. Dr. Tufte will also explain the differences between ground-based telescopes such as the one at Lewis & Clark and space-based telescopes.
Meet in front of Olin Hall at the helical sculpture.
