I'm simulcasting our monthly public talk Friday:
University of Hawaii, Institute for Astronomy Presents:

By Dr. Tom Schad

and in Second Life and InWorldz
Over the centuries, humanity has tuned its existence to Earth's seasons, created by our yearly travel around the Sun. At the dawn of the Machine Age, however, the seasons of the Sun itself proved influential to our progressing world. In this talk, we will explore the cycles of solar activity, and study the impact of these cycles throughout the heliosphere and on our modern society. We will learn of the interplay of new and old methods for the study of solar epochs, and anticipate the great advances of the Senator Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) currently being built on Haleakala.
