Just as archaeologists study ancient artifacts on Earth, astronomers study the oldest observable stars in the universe. Join MIT astronomer Anna Frebel for a firsthand account of the science of stellar archaeology. Blending her own research with recent findings in astronomy, Frebel explains how sections of the night sky are “excavated” in the hunt for extremely rare relic stars and how this search reveals new details about the early history of the universe. A book signing will follow.
Neil deGrasse Tyson may be a guest presenter.
