Spectroscopy: How it’s (really) made, and what’s hiding in the light! – Tim Campbell
September 26 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Where do the elements come from? How do stars form? How do astronomers know what stars are made of? The answers to all these questions and more will be the topic for this presentation where we discuss spectroscopy — the gift that keeps on giving!
Tim Campbell has always been interested in space. He was inspired watching the Apollo missions as a young child, but was really hooked when he saw the rings of Saturn through a telescope. While you can still find Tim looking through telescopes, these days he wants to know how these things work — geeky science experiments are often added in for extra fun. Tim is a volunteer NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador, a past president and active member of the Ford Amateur Astronomy Club in Michigan, and is also a planetarium operator and presenter at Henry Ford College. Tim does numerous outreach events and talks both under the night sky and indoors.
