111 – Optical Astronomy and the Large Binocular Telescope

(average: 4.93)
Loading ... Loading ...

This epsiode covers my visit at the Large Binocular Telescope near Tucson, Arizona. The episode is mostly a conversation with the telescope’s director, Richard Green. We talk about optical astronomy in general and the LBT in particular. I also talk to a scientist who is currently observing at the telescope as well as a telescope operator.

    Great podcast episode. I don’t suppose you took any pictures of the that you have uploaded anywhere?

    Either way, thank you. I really enjoyed this episode.

    I did take a few shots, but I am not a big photographer. At the time I uploaded them to G+, but I have no idea how to find the post now :-/

    Anyway, the photos as the image gallery are much better anyway:

    Thanks :-)

    Your audience definitively does not suffer from an attention span of just 90 seconds, so 180 minutes episodes are fine. It helped me to survive a 4 hour ICE-trip during the peak Christmas-period. So thank you and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Thanks, for you too!

    Yet another fantastic episode – Mr. Green is a wonderful interviewee and I enjoyed every minute of it.
    In my opinion, the length of your podcasts can be as long as needed.
    Good job Markus.
