Professor Xander Tielens, a chemical physicist and self-described moon child, studies molecules in the interstellar medium as a tool for understanding everything from galaxy evolution to the origin of life. Learn more at his plenary talk at #AAS234.
Professor Elisabeth Mills studies one of the most mysterious regions of the Milky Way: the galactic center. Learn about the stars, gas, and a black hole that make this such an exciting area of research ahead of her talk at #AAS234.
Professor Yacine Ali-Haïmoud studies the theory behind our astrophysical observations, from primordial black holes to organic compounds in the interstellar medium. Learn more at his keynote at #AAS234.
Professor Joshua Winn has played a major role in our current understanding of exoplanets, serving as part of both the Kepler and TESS missions. Discover what we know about exoplanets from Kepler and what we may learn from TESS ahead of his plenary talk at #AAS234.
The Milky Way’s nearest neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy, is a promising target for deep multi-wavelength observations. Come listen to Prof. Julianne Dalcanton talk about her work catching up with the neighbor at #AAS233!
Some galaxies are easy to find—others, like dusty galaxies with extreme star formation, are a bit harder to track down. Come to Professor Caitlin Casey’s #AAS233 talk to learn how we can find these galaxies in the “obscured early universe”!
