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 ...

2017 Fall Science Colloquia
Mark Vogelsberger (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
In my talk I will describe recent efforts to model the large-scale distribution of galaxies with cosmological hydrodynamics simulations. I will focus on the Illustris simulation, and our new simulation campaign, the IllustrisTNG project. After demon ...

STScI Public Lecture Series
Kelsey Glazer (Towson University)
A double dose of cosmic considerations, presented by the first undergraduate guest speaker in this series! Begin with the simple, yet deep, question of "why is the night sky dark?" This classic conundrum was raised two centuries ago because it ...

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 ...

2017 Fall Science Colloquia
Mariska Kriek (University of California-Berkeley)
In past years, large and deep photometric and spectroscopic surveys have significantly advanced our understanding of galaxy growth, from the most active time in the universe (z~2) to the present day. In particular, the evolution in stellar mass, star ...

Elizabeth Tasker (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency)
In exploring of our own solar system, astronomers have uncovered some weird worlds. However, these are nothing compared to the lands harboured by our neighbouring stars. Huge Jupiters snuggle so close to their star that their years last only ...

2017 Fall Science Colloquia
Blakesley Burkhart (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics)
Our current view of the interstellar medium (ISM) is as a multiphase environment where turbulence affects many key processes. These include star formation, cosmic ray acceleration, and the evolution of structure in the diffuse ISM. It is therefore es ...

2017 Fall Science Colloquia
Ian Roederer (University of Michigan)
: NASA's Cosmic Origins program aims to address the question, "How did we get here?" My work addresses this question through three broad themes: the nature of the first stars, the formation and evolution of the Milky Way and Local Group, and the ori ...
