Astrophysics Meeting – Friday, 11/19/04

Posted on by tepiastar

This month’s Astrophysics meeting (Friday, Nov. 19) will feature Alex Filippenko’s lecture on the expanding universe, as illuminated by recent supernovae distance studies. Professor Filippenko has been personally active in this area of very active research, so this lecture should be especially rewarding.

The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. in the classroom behind the Centennial Heritage Museum, and we expect that it will begin with Don Lynn’s update on recent developments with the Mars landers, Cassini, etc., including explanations of the pictures he downloads and generously brings to the meetings to share with the rest of us. As usual, the meeting will include discussion of various issues raised by the lecture, current events in the research realm, and otherwise of interest to those in attendance.

For more information, please contact Chris Buchen (, the Coordinator for the Astrophysics SIG.

Everyone is welcome – we look forward to seeing you there!
