Cosmic Images: Beyond Beauty
A Panel Discussion on the Nature and Meaning of Images in Astrophysics
Sunday June 13 @ 7:00 p.m.
SAIC Ballroom
Free and open to the public

An unusual public science event co-hosted by SAIC with Adler Planetarium and the University of Chicago.  Telescope images of objects in space differ from ordinary photographs both because of how they are made and how they are used to answer questions about the universe.  Three astrophysicists have selected specific images that are important to their research.  They will present these cutting-edge views of our universe, exploring the making and meaning of the images themselves.
