Past Astro Seminars



Astronomy seminar: "Constraining Supernova Explosions with Kepler's High-Cadence Lightcurves"

Armin Rest (STSCI)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

Despite the expanding set of SNe discovered in recent surveys like PS1, ZTF, ATLAS, and ASAS-SN, several fundamental questions remain of the…



Astronomy seminar: "High-redshift astrophysics using every photon"

Patick Breysse (CITA)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

Large galaxy surveys have dramatically improved our understanding of astrophysics and cosmology in the high-redshift universe, but they are fundamentally limited by the need to integrate…



Astronomy seminar

Adi Nusser (Technion)
- David Rittehnouse Laboratory, A6



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; "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…
