Subject: Special talk on Google Sky - Wed, April 9,
From: "Christine Pulliam"
To: cfa-events @ cfa.harvard.edu
You are invited to a special public talk on Wednesday,
April 9 beginning at 8:00 pm. Andrew Connolly of the
Google Sky team will present a lecture
titled "Inside Google Sky."
In August 2007, Google launched Sky in Google Earth,
the first application to provide a seamless view of
the night sky using images from the largest
photographic surveys. From exploring the distribution
of stars in the Milky Way to viewing the formation of
the first galaxies; from images of galaxies at
ultraviolet wavelengths to a view of the far-infrared
and radio sky, Google Sky provides users with a
framework to communicate and share ideas about
astronomy. Like Google Earth, Sky is a dynamic
environment, combining new imagery and features that
can be tailored to different needs. In this talk,
Connolly will discuss how Sky came about and the
technologies it uses for sharing information between
people distributed around the world. He also will
demonstrate some of the latest additions and features
that have been developed by a growing Google Sky
NOTE DIFFERENT LOCATION: This talk will take place at
Harvard University's Emerson Hall, Room 105. Event
parking is available in the Broadway Street Garage.
