PEAS is on its way to begin testing at Lick Observatory

The Planet as Exoplanet Analog Spectrograph (PEAS), is led by Emily Martin, a UCSC Postdoctoral Fellows as well as a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow. Martin developed the novel instrument, which takes the light from a planet such as Jupiter and effectively turns it into a point source for spectroscopic analysis. This method will help […]




Innovative Telescopes Set to Detect New Phenomena, Signals from Deep Space

Two, first-of-a-kind telescopes poised to collectively image the entire observable sky in the current search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) are now installed in the Astrograph Dome at Lick Observatory. These novel devices, part of a planned collection of large lenses, could help researchers on project Panoramic SETI (PANOSETI) discover new astronomical phenomena or signals from […]
