This free public lecture will be held on the 12th of Sept 2019 at 6:00pm in the Kerr Grant Lecture Theatre located in the Physics Building (North Terrace Campus of Uni Adelaide).

Abstract:

In this talk, Dr James will discuss the process of translating scientific goals into a viable instrument design on a spacecraft. Based on his experience as systems engineer for the VIS instrument on the upcoming ESA Euclid Dark Matter mission he hopes to be able to show  how space instrumentation is developed from a systems perspective.
