Henson Seminar Featuring Nick Troup March 29
SALISBURY, MD---The fifth phase of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-V) will be the first truly all-sky spectroscopic survey with data publicly available, thanks to new robotic hardware installed on telescopes in both hemispheres.
Dr. Nick Troup, assistant professor of physics, in Salisbury University’s Richard A. Henson School of Science and Technology and leader of the Milky Way Mapper Binaries Science Working Group, explores this and future data releases in the presentation “A Census of Stellar Companionship” 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 29, in Henson Science Hall Room 243.
SDSS-V builds upon a legacy of data spanning over 20 years, all available to the public. Future data releases will allow the study of multi-epoch spectroscopy to characterize a variety of binary star systems, as well systems with substellar (failed star) companions.
Sponsored by the Henson School, admission is free and the public is invited. Those planning to park on campus must register in advance for a free parking pass. For more information call 410-543-6489.
