Bethany Cobb: In Galileo’s Footsteps (lecture)
In this galactic lecture, Bethany Cobb brings to life the story of the fascinating astronomy pioneer Edwin Hubble. She explains the significance surrounding his use of a 100-inch telescope at the Mount Wilson Observatory in California. Cobb describes Hubble’s resolution of the “Great Debate” over the scale of the universe 300 years after Galilieo’s great discoveries.
She also covers how he also produced extensive proof that the universe is expanding. This ten minute lecture will captivate its viewers as it takes an in-depth look inside the astronomical work of Hubble. The lecture was presented as part of the International Year of Astronomy honouring the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s use of the telescope.
Dr. Bethany Cobb is dedicated to sharing her love of astronomy with others. As a National Science Foundation Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral at UC Berkeley, she has an astronomical amount of information to share with the public. Dr. Cobb obtained her PhD from Yale University for her extensive research on massive stellar explosions referred to as gamma-ray bursts. As well, she is the astronomer for The Old Farmer’s Almanac.
Celebrate Hubble’s outstanding work with this informative lecture organized by the Humanities Member-Led Forum at the Commonwealth Club.
