Curiosity Drives Progress Lecture Series: Giants of Earth and Space

The Curiosity Drives Progress Lecture Series showcases CSE's top faculty. Our next installment will highlight the work of two distinguished CSE professors who are unlocking the mysteries of a presence in our everyday lives, the Sun, and of our world's past, dinosaurs. View full presentation descriptions on the CSE public lecture website.

FEATURING:

  • "The Star in our Backyard: The Science Behind Solar Storms"Lindsay Glesener, Assistant Professor, School of Physics and Astronomy—The Sun offers us a special window into the universe by allowing us to study astrophysics in our own neighborhood. Glesener will describe what we currently know about the physics behind solar flares and what we hope to learn in the future with new telescopes.
  • "Peering Through a Microscope at Gigantic Dinosaurs"Peter Makovicky, Professor, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences—By examining microscopic details in cross-sections of predatory non-avian dinosaur bones, we can quantify the rates at which these extreme animals grew, whether they all followed a common or divergent growth strategies, and how this relates to the biology of the only living dinosaurs, birds.

Universe @ Home: The Theory of General Relativity (And You)

Presenters: Nico Adams, Maxwell Kuschel and Avery Wold

Right now, astronauts on the International Space Station are moving faster through time than you are. Similarly, your head is moving very slightly faster than your feet. These things are a result of the General Theory of Relativity, which states that Earth's gravity warps the space and time that we live in. In this talk, we'll discuss a few ways that general relativity is currently affecting you on Earth, and how astronomers have measured these effects in space.

April Star Party (Virtual Edition)

Spiral, elliptical, irregular—oh my! Galaxies abound in our spring sky. Some galaxies are even home to supernovae—the explosive remains of dead stars. Join us and our special guest Laura Salo from the Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics as we explore some of the galaxies in our own cosmic backyard.

Guest Speaker 

Laura Salo is pursuing her Ph.D. in astrophysics at the University of Minnesota. Her current research involves spectral analysis of galaxies that are home to supernovae in order to discover more about the environments of these explosive stars.

Register on Eventbrite.

Online, link will be sent with registration.

At Home Activity

Galaxy Zoo! Classify galaxies by their shape to help figure out how galaxies form. Citizen scientists like you have made over 2.1 million classifications to date and have even made discoveries like Green Pea galaxies. Anyone can be a citizen scientist, no previous experience required.

Cray Distinguished Speaker Series

The Cray Distinguished Speaker Series was established in 1981 by an endowment from Cray Research. It continues to bring distinguished visitors to the Department of Computer Science & Engineering every year. Join us to hear from our upcoming speakers, who are experts in the areas of theoretical computer science, biometrics, and data science.
