Tom Matheson (NOIRLab)

A common view of the stars is one of constancy, but virtually everything in the night sky is changing to some degree. The dynamic nature of astronomical objects has been a key driver of the science for centuries. Modern astronomy is now in the middle of a revolution in the study of the time domain. NOIRLab's Tom Matheson will describe some of the history of time-domain astronomy, the technology that is driving its current dramatic expansion, and some of the interesting science that comes from watching things change.
