Satellite systems and space development programs: a talk by Prof. Motoi Wada of Doshisha University


The Department of Physics of Ateneo de Manila University cordially invites you to

Art of Science and Engineering III: A Talk on Satellite Systems and Space Development Programs

by Prof. Motoi Wada (Applied Physics Laborary, Doshisha University)

  • Date: 16 January 2017
  • Time: 1:00-3:00 p.m.
  • Venue: SOM 211 (John Gokongwei School of Management)

Abstract: The previous talk covered a story of gravitational wave detection. It is a science supported by an advanced technology. We go out to interstellar space this time. There, sophisticated control systems determine trajectories of explorer satellites solving Newtonian mechanics problems that you learn in your classroom. Mathematical formulations visualize images of photon signals in invisible wavelength range from dark deep space. This talk will cover status of space development programs at both USA and Japan

Art of Science and Technology
by Prof. Motoi Wada,

1:30 PM to 2:30 PM at the Soc Sci Lecture Rooms 3 & 4 this Friday, Nov. 27, 2015.

This seminar will introduce the audience to how the Japanese are cultivating their knowledge and skill in physics and engineering. Japan is currently focusing their research in the fields of exploring extra-terrestrial space, nuclear fusion and elementary particle physics. Interested parties who want to explore the wonderful world of physics and engineering will want to attend this seminar.

Prof. Wada is a faculty of the Graduate School of Science and Engineering and the Department of Electrical Engineering in Doshisha University, Kyoto, Japan. He is also the coordinator of the Plasma Physics Laboratory in Doshisha University. His research fields include plasma science and technology, plasma-surface interaction, other plasma applications and nuclear fusion science. Prof. Wada has also done collaborative research work with the Vacuum Coating and Plasma Physics Laboratory in the Department of Physics, SOSE.

Snacks will be served for the attendees.
