2017 Fall Science Colloquia
Gilles Fontaine (University of Montreal)
A few years ago, Charpinet, Fontaine, & Brassard (2009, Nature, 461, 501) developed a new approach to test for solid body rotation (and deviations thereof) in pulsating stars. The method was successfully applied to the prototype of the GW Vir class o ...

STScI Astrobiology Lecture Series
Kevin Peter Hand (NASA/Jet Propulsion Lab/Caltech)
Where is the best place to find living life beyond Earth? It may be that the small, ice-covered moons of Jupiter and Saturn harbor some of the most habitable real estate in our Solar System. Life loves liquid water and these moons have lots of it! Dr ...

2017 Fall Science Colloquia
Victoria Kaspi (McGill University)
Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) are a newly discovered astrophysical phenomenon consisting of short (few ms) bursts of radio waves. FRBs occur roughly 1000 times per sky per day. From their dispersion measures, these events are clearly extragalactic and p ...
