    Measuring the Speed of Stars More Precisely Than Your Car’s Speedometer

    Fri at 07:00 PM
    Open to Public

    The “doppler method” or “wobble method” of detecting planets orbiting other stars, requires precise measurements of the speeds of those distant stars. If we can see a star oscillating towards and away from us, we can infer that an unseen planet is tugging on its parent star as it orbits. We will learn just how hard it is to precisely measure the speeds of stars to the precision of 9 cm/s (0.2 mph!) necessary for finding these Earth-like planets. Next-generation ... more

    Meet an Astronomer - Cannibal Galaxies

    Tue at 02:00 PM
    Open to Public

    Many galaxies have a sinister secret: they’re cannibals. The biggest have grown bloated by devouring their neighbors in galactic feeding frenzies that would make Hannibal Lecter proud. Like detectives at the scene of a crime, astronomer Dr. Michael West searches for clues to reveal the violent histories of cannibal galaxies and their victims. But separating the cannibal from the cannibalized isn’t always easy.
