World Premier of "5000 Eyes: Mapping the Universe with DESI"

5000 eyes

The Arne Slettebak Planetarium at Ohio State is part of the world premiere of “5000 Eyes: Mapping the Universe with DESI” on Saturday, March 4! This is a fulldome film about the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI), which is creating the most detailed map of our universe using a unique instrument that measures the spectra of many galaxies at once. The film was created by Fiske Planetarium in collaboration with DESI scientists, including some at Ohio State.

Experience the largest structures in the universe as never seen before by flying through a portion of DESI's initial data. Dive into modern cosmology, plus the scientific background and motivation for building a large map of galaxies. And, take a trip to Kitt Peak to see footage of the telescope in action while getting to know the amazing people from all over the world making this research possible. 

The DESI team at Ohio State is comprised of researchers from the Departments of Astronomy and Physics, including the Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics.
