We are pleased to present the seventh and final seminar of the 2010-2011 academic year!  This coming Wednesday, Dr. Jeremy Heyl of UBC PHAS will be holding a seminar on the subject of neutron stars.

Title: Shaking and Baking Neutron Stars
Who: Dr. Jeremy Heyl
When: Wednesday, March 16th @ 4:00 PM
Where: CEME 1204 

A general theme threads my research: how is our understanding of astrophysical phenomena and fundamental physics connected.  Neutron stars provide a laboratory to test our knowledge of nature at the extreme.  The magnetic fields, densities and pressures of neutron stars exceed those produced on Earth more than a billion-fold. Neutron stars provide a unique opportunity to extrapolate and verify our theories of matter, energy and their interaction.  I will present observations of tsunamis and earthquakes on neutron stars and what they can tell us
about these extreme objects.

Lots of money left in the budget for this seminar, so there will be lots of free food!  Come on out!
