The Extra-Galactic Background Light: Opening a Window to Early Galaxy and Star Formation

Venue: Zoom

Event Video

During the voyage of an Interstellar Probe mission to the edge of our Heliosphere and beyond, there exists many opportunities for new discoveries in Astrophysics. This webinar will feature a discussion on one of those opportunities, measuring the extra-galactic background light, without the limitations of the Zodiacal cloud, and how such measurements could be achieved. These measurements hold the possibility to revolutionize our understanding of the formation and evolution of our universe, by measuring the light created by all the stars and galaxies in the Universe since the Big Bang.
