Hello Night Sky Network Members!


This is a reminder that our telecon with Dr. Mandeep Gill, " *Cosmology
from Gravitational Lensing" **is TONIGHT, September 25th at 6:00 PM Pacific
Time.*

*Slides are now available on our resource page: http://bit.ly/nsnlensing
<http://bit.ly/nsnlensing> or directly from here: *
http://nightsky.jpl.nasa.gov/docs/NSNTelecon201409DrGill.pdf

*Call-in Information*

NSN members are invited to join the live telecon by calling the toll-free
line:  *1-888-455-9236 <1-888-455-9236>*

Call up to 15 minutes before the telecon begins. An operator will answer
and:

   -  You will be asked for the passcode: *NIGHT SKY NETWORK*
   -  You will be asked to give your *NAME* and the *CLUB* you belong to as
   well as the number of people listening with you


Our original announcement with more details can be found below. We hope to
hear from you tonight!

NSN members: join us on *Thursday, September 25 at 6:00 pm Pacific Time * for
an informative telecon with *Dr. Mandeep Gill*
<http://www.slac.stanford.edu/~msgill/> of the Stanford Linear Accelerator
Center (*SLAC*). His topic will be: *Co smology from Gravitational Lensing*,
or Professor Einstein Teaches us About the Cosmos through its Spacetime
Curvature. Dr. Gill will take us through a tour through the universe of the
very big and very small, and show us the links between particle physics on
Earth and the warping of spacetime that we can see on very large scales in
our universe.

*About Dr. Mandeep Gill**[image: Dr. Mandeep Gill, photo courtesy Stanford]*

Dr. Mandeep Gill is a member of the public affairs department and an
observational cosmologist at SLAC concentrating on gravitational weak
lensing.  In 2008 he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Center for
Cosmology and Particle Physics at the Ohio State University concentrating
on gravitational weak lensing and determination of cosmological parameters
from this technique. He earned his doctorate at UC Berkeley in 2004 in
Experimental High Energy Particle Physics. In the summer of 2005 he visited
the LHC at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, and observed (one might even say
was "awed by") the construction of the CMS and Atlas experiments. In a
visiting position at Caltech in 2006 he was involved in a cosmology project
involving second order weak lensing (and ultimately better dark matter
distribution determination) of distant galaxy clusters.
