Talk

Sun’s Rotation

Sun’s Rotation was one of the sessions.

Join Dr Andrew Jacob, astronomy curator at Sydney Observatory as he discusses the sun’s rotation in front of Anish Kapoor’s Sky Mirror.

Dr Andrew Jacob’s astronomy career began somewhere between reading Arthur C. Clarke novels and receiving a telescope as a present for his 12th brthday. Following a detour to a degree in engineering he was awarded a doctorate from the University of Sydney for determining the distance to three pulsating Cepheid stars – the aim being to help calibrate the cosmological distance scale. He has been a guide at Sydney Observatory for over twenty years and has run the Night Viewing component of the University of Sydney’s first year astronomy course for a decade. For the last couple of years he has been working as Curator of Astronomy at Sydney Observatory. He is a member of the Education and Public Outreach Chapter of the Astronomical Society of Australia.
