Dave Jewitt discusses the 20th anniversary of the Keck Observatory

Posted on March 18, 2013

Observations from the Keck led to the discovery of a supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way by UCLA's Andrea Ghez, a professor of physics and astronomy who holds the Lauren B. Leichtman and Arthur E. Levine Chair in Astrophysics. Professor David Jewitt, who holds joint faculty appointments in the departments of Earth and space sciences and physics and astronomy, continues his explorations at the Keck of the Kuiper Belt, which he discovered in 1992, of some 70,000 small bodies orbiting beyond Neptune.
