Talk: Supernovae, Exoplanets, Black Holes

Supernovae, Exoplanets, Black Holes, and New Technology: Frontier Research at UC's Lick Observatory Lick Observatory is a vibrant research facility, and a primary base for the University of California's astronomy education and outreach efforts. Cutting-edge fields include supernovae, Earth-like exoplanets, supermassive black holes, and laser-guide-star adaptive optics. Come find out about discoveries and public outreach being done at Lick, now partially supported by a generous gift from Google | Making Science, and how you can help sustain these activities
