The Rotunda at Lowell Observatory

Otto Franz, Emeritus Astronomer

Otto’s research specialty is investigating binary stars to expand our knowledge of stellar masses and better understand their formation and evolution. He is one of the first astronomers to use Hubble Telescope for the study of binary stars and has, in this way, achieved unprecedented resolution of close pairs.
