|Lecture||Lec #1 TR 10:10-11:25||Lec #2 MWF 10:10-11:00|
|Instructor:||Professor Nick Battaglia||Professor Martha Haynes|
|Lec #1 syllabus (coming soon)||Lec #2 syllabus (tentative)|
Look at the Astro 2201 frequently asked questions for the whole semester.
Professor Haynes is one of the leaders of the Cornell-led CCAT project, a submillimeter telescope being built at an altitude of 18,400 feet in the high Atacama Desert of northern Chile. In this PBS interview, she talks about the telescope, the site and the science it will enable.
Prof. Haynes is the co-PI of the ALFALFA survey, including the Undergraduate ALFALFA Team. The Cornell ExtraGalactic Group observes a lot with the Arecibo telescope -- Perhaps you saw this telescope in the films "Golden Eye" or "Contact".
Prof. Battaglia uses observations of the cosmic microwave background to explore fundamental physics, galaxy formation and the epoch of reionization. He is an expert in computational astrophysics and has been associated with the Center for Computational Astrophysics at the Flatiron Institute in NYC.
