TEDxHONOLULU - Dr. Michael Liu - Telescopes as Time Machines

Born and raised in the Washington, D.C. area, Michael's undergraduate work at Cornell University and his doctoral work at the University of California, Berkeley, led him to the Institute of Astronomy at the University of Hawai'i at M?noa, where he is a faculty member. He studies how stars and planets form. To do this, his research uses the world's most powerful telescopes both on and above the Earth, including the Keck Observatory on the Big Island of Hawai'i and the Hubble Space Telescope.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
