Journey to the Cosmic Dawn

Join fellow MIT alumni at the American Museum of Natural History’s Hayden Planetarium on April 13 for an evening of networking, discussion, and a peek into deep space with MIT astronomer Shep Doeleman.

Doeleman is a principal research scientist and assistant director of the MIT Haystack Observatory. His research focuses on studying massive black holes with sufficient resolution to directly observe the event horizon.
His research aims to achieve astrophysics’ most enduring goal: studying black holes billions of miles away from Earth using the same tools that can analyze stars in this galaxy. His team has harnessed a global network of telescopes to collaboratively create one Earth-size virtual telescope to study these black holes—some of which contain matter measuring billions of times the mass of the sun.

Please register today—space is limited and this event may sell out. This event is sponsored by the MIT Alumni Association in partnership with the MIT Club of New York.
