Plymouth University - Rolle Building
Plymouth University Campus, Plymouth, Devon, PL4 8AA
Multimessenger Astronomy, by Professor John Beckman, Astrophysics Institute of the Canaries, Tenerife
TIME 7.30 – 9.30 pm WHERE Plymouth University campus, Room – Rolle 002 (Ground floor).
John researches in the areas of galactic structure and evolution, galactic kinematics and dynamics, the interstellar medium, and observational cosmology.
He has recently written a popular science-level book, Multimessenger Astronomy. After centuries when all our information about the Universe has come via electromagnetic waves, now several entirely new ways of exploring it have emerged. The most spectacular has been the detection of gravitational waves in 2015, but astronomy also uses neutrinos and cosmic ray particles to probe processes in the centres of stars and galaxies. This talk will link these new ideas with the traditional, showing how astronomy has advanced at an increasing pace in the modern era.
Visitors are very welcome (£2 at the door) – Please bring cash, change preferred, we have no card payment facilities.
