Fall 2021

Sep 2, 2021

Watch Video The Dynamic Local Universe

4:00 pm – 5:00 pm (CDT)Streaming Live

Speaker: Louis Strigari (Texas A&M University)Host: Casey Papovich

New three-dimensional measurements of the positions and velocities of stars, in particular from the Gaia observatory, have provided unprecedented information on the dynamics of the Milky Way and nearby dwarf galaxies. I will discuss how these observations have impacted our understanding of hierarchical structure formation in the Universe, the Milky Wa... read more  »

Watch Video Mining Neutron Stars

4:00 pm – 5:00 pm (CDT)Streaming Live

Speaker: Jeremy Holt (Texas A&M University)Host: Dan Melconian

Neutron stars are one of Nature’s most intriguing stellar objects, containing matter under extraordinary conditions of density, temperature, and composition that are difficult to produce in the laboratory. In recent years, neutron star observations have begun to place novel constraints on the properties of strongly interacting matter in the high-d... read more  »

Watch Video Matter under extreme conditions – Multi-disciplinary aspects of relativistic particle collisions

4:00 pm – 5:00 pm (CDT)Streaming Live

Speaker: Rene Bellwied (University of Houston)Host: Rainer Fries

Relativistic particle collisions have come a long way during the past two decades with the discovery of the Higgs Boson and the earliest state of matter in the evolution of the universe, the so-called Quark Gluon Plasma. I will try to show how these discoveries lead to significant multi-disciplinary efforts to understand the creation and evolution of ma... read more  »

Reasons to Remain Excited About WIMPs

4:00 pm – 5:00 pm (CDT)Streaming Live

Speaker: Dan Hooper (Fermilab and University of Chicago)Host: Louis Strigari

Although weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) have long been the leading class of candidates for the dark matter of our universe, the lack of a confirmed detection of these particles has left many in the scientific community increasingly skeptical of their existence. In this talk, I will ask the following questions: How surprised should we be th... read more  »
