        Affiliates Welcome Event

        The Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS) is hosting an event to welcome the postdocs and graduate students that were accepted into the 2020 KISS Affiliates Program.

        13 - 17

        Workshop: Nebulae - Deep-Space Computing Clouds Part 2

        We will continue to explore how to “Nebula-enable” missions, such that there is sufficient storage and computational capability for large quantities of data to be gathered, pre-processed and selected for optimal downlink to make the most of the bits that the Deep Space Network (DSN) can support.

        Does Io Have a Magma Ocean?

        Future space missions will further our knowledge of tidal heating and orbital resonances, processes thought to create spectacular volcanism and oceans of magma or water on other worlds. For as much as we know, there remain fundamental gaps in our understanding of tidal heating. At a Keck Institute for Space Studies workshop [de Kleer et al., 2019] in October 2018, participants discussed the current state of knowledge about tidal heating as well as how future spacecraft missions to select solar system targets could help address these gaps.

        The Architecture of the LISA Science Analysis

        Final Report: The Architecture of the LISA Science Analysis

        The space-based gravitational-wave observatory LISA will offer unparalleled science returns, including a view of massive black hole mergers up to high redshifts, precision tests of general relativity and black hole structure, a census of thousands of compact binaries in the Galaxy, and the possibility of detecting stochastic signals from the early Universe.

        Telescopes, Astronomical Discoveries, and Their Influence on Literature

        Video Posted: Telescopes, Astronomical Discoveries, and Their Influence on Literature

        Anna Ho is a graduate student in the astronomy department at Caltech. In this talk, she will discuss Chaucer and Milton and other artists who grappled with developments in astronomy, and who incorporated an updated understanding of the universe into their dialogue and imagery.

        From Apollo to Artemis: Policy History and Promise

        Video Posted: From Apollo to Artemis: Policy History and Promise

        This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the first Apollo lunar landing and the announcement of the Artemis program to place the first American woman and the next American man on the Moon in the next five years. The first half of the talk will describe the policy history around President Kennedy’s challenge of “before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth” as well as subsequent internal debates on how to meet this audacious goal.
