The NU Astronomy of Stars, Black Holes, and Cosmic Explosions

CIERA* Tenth Annual Public Lecture by Director Vicky Kalogera 

Celebrate TEN YEARS OF ASTRONOMY DISCOVERIES by the faculty, postdocs, and students of CIERA, Northwestern’s astronomy research center.

Learn how our understanding of the lives of stars and their influence on the Cosmos has changed over the past ten years. The story will range from how stars live and die, to how we study their remains with light and gravity, in order to untangle the evolution of the galaxy and Universe. The lecture will feature the core stories of how our work in CIERA has helped push those frontiers of understanding. 

Stay after the lecture for a special “Ask an Astronomer” meet-and-greet with Northwestern astronomers.

This event is open to the public and accessible for all ages and knowledge levels.
