Seamless Colloquium: Linking Visualization & Understanding in Astronomy

Location: 

Phillips Auditorium, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, 60 Garden Street

In 1610, when Galileo pointed his small telescope at Jupiter, he drew sketches to record what he saw. After just a few nights of observing, he understood his sketches to be showing moons orbiting Jupiter. It was the visualization of Galileo’s observations that led to his understanding of a clearly Sun-centered solar system, and to the revolution this understanding then caused.
