The first seminar in the Spring 2020 Undergraduate STEM Research Seminar series features Professor Richard Gelderman, director of the Hardin Planetarium at Western Kentucky University. Professor Gelderman will be visiting to talk about the study of jets, beams of matter and energy that originate from a variety of distant astronomical objects for reasons that are not completely understood. The talk, Astrophysical Jets: outflows of matter and energy from compact celestial objects (click on the title to see a full abstract), will be this Friday, Jan. 24th, at 3pm in Foundation Hall 238, with refreshments served at 2:30pm. This seminar series is geared for undergraduates from any STEM major, but graduate students and faculty are also encouraged to attend!
