Discoverer of Worlds

Featuring original HiMARC imagery, Dr. Natalie Batalha and NASA's Kepler Mission
I was inspired to feature the Kepler Mission as Physics In Vogue's first piece as I know firsthand just how difficult it is to do this kind of science and thanks to a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to image the Venus transit. It takes painstaking dedication, brilliant minds and years of precision analysis to accomplish what the Kepler team has in so short a time. You can learn about the technology I developed behind the imagery on the HiMARC page. Check out the Get Involved page to learn how you can be a part of the extra-solar planet discovery process. A color-coded breakdown of the components in Discoverer of Worlds is available on the exhibition page.
