2014 Fall Science Colloquia Series
Michael Cooper (University of California – Irvine)
While modern models of galaxy evolution have made significant strides in explaining the observed properties of massive galaxies over cosmic time, recent observational results have illustrated a fundamental problem with the ability of these same model ...

2014 Fall Science Colloquia Series
Felix Mirabel (CEA, France)
Abstract: The end of the dark age of the universe is one of the major frontiers in cosmology. Until recently most models assumed that the ultraviolet radiation from the first generations of massive stars was the main (and in some models the only) cau ...

2014 Fall Science Colloquia Series
MIchael Boylan- Kolchin (University of Maryland – College Park)
Abstract: The Local Group affords us the opportunity to study the low-mass extremes of galaxy formation and cosmology. In this capacity, it presents some of the most enduring challenges to the very successful LCDM cosmology. I will discuss to what de ...

2014 Fall Science Colloquia Series
Martha Boyer  (GSFC)
Abstract: > The origin of interstellar dust in distant quasars is under debate. > Infrared observations of nearby galaxies and the Milky Way show that > there are two dominant (known) sources of dust: supernovae ejecta and > the winds of evolve ...

2014 Fall Science Colloquia Series
Meredith Hughes (Wesleyan University)
Abstract: Circumstellar disks provide the raw material and initial conditions for planet formation. Millimeter-wavelength interferometry is a powerful tool for studying gas and dust in planet-forming regions, and it is undergoing a multiple-order-of- ...

2014 Fall Science Colloquia Series
Richard Townsend (University of Wisconsin – Madison)
Massive stars were long thought to be magnet. We now know that around 10% of massive stars harbor intense, ordered, stable magnetic fields. These fields interact strongly with the stars' hypersonic radiation-driven winds, channeling and confining th ...

2014 Fall Science Colloquia Series
Ryan Hickox (Dartmouth College)
Recent years have seen remarkable advances in our understanding of how supermassive black holes form and grow over cosmic time, and how energy released by active galactic nuclei (AGN) connects the growth of black holes to their host galaxies and larg ...

2014 Fall Science Colloquia Series
Remi Soummer (STScI)
Abstract: Direct imaging will enable finding and characterizing exo-Earth with a future space mission, and searching for life. How can we prepare for such an ambitious goal? What can be done already with existing and upcoming facilities in the mean ...
