 The history of astronomy since WWII has been one of new technologies opening new modes of discovery. Radio astronomy brought quasars, pulsars and the big bang. Millimeter wave astronomy brought interstellar molecules. X-ray astronomy brought black holes. The discoveries of the 1990’s – planets around other stars and the acceleration of the universe resulted from a combination of new techniques, lucky observations, and the astounding and unexpected properties of the natural world.

These discoveries spawned new “industries”, massive efforts that now dominate the field, and generated a drive for a whole range of new technologies to help us understand our origins. Today’s astronomy thrives on innovation but faces many of the constraints and competitive challenges that businesses face. In this presentation, we will discuss some of the latest work in the field and how it has responded to new technical developments and to the unexpected discoveries that make astronomy such an exciting area of study. Register today!

Values matter in the workplace, because they determine the frame that we place on the interactions that we have with others. To put this into context, it is important to understand the psychology of values and the role that these values play in the way people interpret the world. We discuss this point in the context of negotiation and competition in the workplace. Negotiation affects not only the particular outcome being discussed but also the relationships among people that determine what counts as the successful outcome of a negotiation. We also explore the role of values in determining broader issues in the workplace like work-life balance, and the responsibility companies have to the society around them. Learn more.
