2017 Fall Science Colloquia
Raffaella Margutti (Northwestern University)
Observations are drawing a complex picture of the latest stages of massive stars evolution and their explosions. In this seminar I concentrate on two among the least understood aspects of stellar evolution, adopting an observational perspective: How ...

2017 Fall Science Colloquia
Geronimo Luis Villanueva (Goddard Space Flight Center)
We recently established that Mars lost an ocean’s worth of water, while the Curiosity rover has recently detected organics on the Martian surface and in the atmosphere. If Mars had a rich chemical and diverse past, how much of these biomarkers were l ...

Kirill Tchernyshyov  (JHU)
There is general agreement that the ISM of the Milky Way is arranged into a spiral-like pattern of some sort, though there is not yet agreement on how regular this spiral-like pattern is or how it evolves. To investigate this and other questions rela ...

2017 Hot Sci @ STScI
Dominika Wylezalek (JHU)
Feedback from accreting supermassive black holes is now a standard ingredient in galaxy formation models. But while many compelling models of AGN feedback exist, there is no clear data-driven picture of how AGN-driven winds are launched, how they pro ...

Ben Sargent  (Space Telescope Science Institute)
The asymptotic giant branch (AGB) phase is one of the last phases of a star’s life. AGB stars lose mass in an outflow in which dust condenses and is pushed away from the star. Extreme AGB stars are so named because their very red colors suggest ver ...
