For example, you may learn about:

What birds and other animals live in Champaign-Urbana parks
Floating superconductors
Solar flares via solar telescopes
Pants that don't stain thanks to nanotechnology

Join us this Friday, April 22nd, when Bruce Carpenter will present “Albert Michelson's Harmonic Analyzer: A Visual Tour of a Nineteenth Century Machine”. 

About the Talk: In a glass case in the hallway of Altgeld Hall on the University of Illinois campus lies an all-but-forgotten machine -- a Harmonic Analyzer designed by Albert Michelson to perform Fourier Analysis. This presentation will describe the yearlong effort to memorialize this machine via the creation of a series of videos and production of posters and a coffee table book. No specialized knowledge will be necessary to appreciate this wondrous machine.

Topic: Albert Michelson's Harmonic Analyzer: A Visual Tour of a Nineteenth Century Machine

When: Friday, April 22nd, 2016, from 12:00-1:00pm

Where: 505 E Green St, Classroom 201, Champaign, IL 61820
