UCLA Galactic Center
Fred and Joyce Hameetman generously hosted a special event and dinner at The Wallis to inform a group of scientists and patrons of the most recent advances of the UCLA Galactic Center, which uses the W.M. Keck Observatory atop Hawaii’s dormant Mauna Kea volcano, along with a powerful technology called Adaptive Optics (AO) that Ghez helped pioneer for use in astronomy. AO corrects the distorting the effects of the Earth’s atmosphere in real time. The clear pictures AO provides have shown that exactly what happens near a supermassive black hole is quite different than what theoretical models have predicted, challenging many of our notions of how black holes shape our galaxy.
