    "Lost without Longitude"


    Pfizer Lecture Hall, Mallinckrodt Chemistry Lab, 12 Oxford Street
    6:00pm to 9:00pm

    One of the most important scientific challenges in early eighteenth-century Europe was the search for a reliable way to determine longitude at sea. Using a free interactive program called “WorldWide Telescope,” Alyssa Goodman will demonstrate how various historic and modern systems for measuring longitude at sea work (or fail to work), highlighting key life-saving techniques to find one’s position using the motions of stars and moons, as well as magnetic anomalies.
