    Taking the Temperature of the Universe

    Wed at 07:30 PM
    Open to Public

    Astronomy PhD student Phoebe Upton Sanderbeck will present about how measuring the temperature of the universe can help us understand its development. The intergalactic medium (IGM) is the network of gas between galaxies that contains most of the matter in the universe. It is difficult to directly observe, but we can learn about the IGM through indirect detections and theoretical predictions. From indirect detections of the IGM through quasar spectra, we are able to determine the ... more

    The Hunt for Habitable Worlds and Biosignatures in the 2020s and Beyond

    Wed at 07:30 PM
    Open to Public

    Are we alone? This is one of the most monumental and consequential questions humanity has asked itself. In the coming decades, we may finally know whether simple life is common or exceedingly rare in our cosmic neighborhood. The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), set for launch in 2018, is our first chance to characterize 1-3 habitable planets around nearby stars with transmission spectroscopy UW astronomy graduate student Edward Schwieterman will review plans to identify and ... more
