Online SoVerA Meeting: The Lighter Side of Dark Matter – An Astronomette’s Journey into the Realm

July 14, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Margot Kuhns Schmitt

Ginny Siggia comes to the Southern Vermont Astronomy Group from Keene, NH, where she took several astronomy courses with Claudio Véliz at Keene State College’s Cheshire Academy for Lifelong Learning program. At his encouragement, she decided to revisit a long-dormant chapter in her deep-space dark past.  Prior to retirement, Ginny worked at MIT for 38 years, including 12 in a non-professional capacity with a group of astronomers. It was there that she discovered the lure of occultations and observatories, grappled with incomprehensible magnitudes of scale and witnessed several exciting milestones in astronomy. However, her MIT years were by no means limited to the celestial realm. Join us as she shares some of her experiences — astronomical and otherwise — at a quirky, fun, and astonishing place.
