New Exhibit: “Charting the Universe”

Come see our newest exhibit at Kresge! Curated by Elizabeth Neill ’13 under the guidance of Professor Richard Kremer, this exhibit draws from Dartmouth’s King Collection of Historic Scientific Instruments.

Astronomy and surveying are fields born from the desire to explore, understand, and chart the universe, at scales ranging from the galactic to the Green in Hanover. This exhibit showcases the scientific instruments that contribute to our visual understanding of the universe.
