Field Trip: Mapping the Universe

Friday, June 19, 2020

How do we calculate the distances of stars far outside our solar system? 

And galaxies well beyond our Milky Way? How much of the sky has been charted and how might we fill in the gaps? 

The American Museum of Natural History’s Digital Universe Atlas leverages data from dozens of agencies and universities worldwide to create a digital 3D atlas of the cosmos. Join the Museum’s Director of Astrovisualization Carter Emmart and astrophysicist Jackie Faherty on a virtual field trip to the edge of the observable universe and discover how scientists are mapping space.
