Event details


Tuesday September 13 – This is the guy who might save your life !! Angel Rodriguez will speak on the science of volcanology and the early alert system he monitors on Volcan Baru. Angel was born in Panama but graduated from the University of Washington where he married his wife Carla Black. Angel has been a tinkerer and inventor all his life. In his previous life he made bicycles and computers. Spending winters in Volcan,  Panama, Angel started building telescopes. He then turned his attention to making seismometers.
