Past Astro Seminars



Astronomy seminar: "Probes of non-standard gravity with peculiar motions and galactic satellites"

Adi Nusser (Technion)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

Despite the success of the standard LambdaCDM model, it is argued that some modifications may well be motivated on theoretical and observational grounds. The talk will discuss how to…



Astronomy seminar

Adi Nusser (Technion)
- David Rittehnouse Laboratory, A6



Astronomy seminar; "Cosmology in the multi-messenger era"

Macarena Lagos (University of Chicago)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

We have great certainty on how gravity works around our Solar System, but on large scales we still have a considerable lack of understanding about the constituents of our universe. Furthermore…



Astronomy seminar: "The Formation of Massive Galaxies: deep, high-redshift spectroscopy from the LEGA-C Survey and Beyond"

Rachel Bezanson (University of Pittsburgh)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

Today’s massive elliptical galaxies are primarily red-and-dead, dispersion supported ellipticals. The physical process(es) driving the shutdown or “quenching” of star formation in these…



Astronomy seminar: "Evidence for CII diffuse line emission at redshift z~2.6"

Shengqi Yang (New York University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A2

CII is one of the brightest emission lines from star-forming galaxies and is an excellent tracer for star formation. Recent work measured the CII emission line amplitude for redshifts 2<z<3.2…
