Planets, Stars, Gravitational Waves, and the Formation of Galaxies 

Over the past few years, the science from the 100-meter Green Bank Telescope has ranged from discovering complex organic molecules in space, searching for elusive gravitational waves, scanning the skies for signals from alien civilizations, mapping swarms of hydrogen clouds which are streaming away from our galaxy, and unearthing new facts to help us understand how planets form.  This talk reviews these topics, and other, recent discoveries and discusses the impact they have on societies understanding of the Universe.

Speaker
Karen O’Neil, Green Bank Site Director and Assistant Director for Green Bank Operations, The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO)
