Dr. Travis Rector, University of Alaska Anchorage

Everyone loves pictures of space. But have you ever wondered if that’s what they really look like? Or if the colors are real? For over twenty years astronomer Dr. Travis A. Rector has been making color astronomical images with some of the world’s largest telescopes. Dr. Rector will give a behind-the-scenes look at what professional astronomers do, and what they don’t do, when making these beautiful images. He’ll also share with people images and stories from his new book, called “Coloring the Universe.”
