Science Talk: Next Generation Super-Telescopes

Astronomers are the greediest people on the planet…for light! They will stop at nothing to build bigger and bigger telescopes to gather more light and see further into space. Over the next several years, a new generation of super-telescopes will be coming online. Join us to learn about these giant telescopes and their amazing science capabilities.
