Happy New Year, Trenton! AoT returned after a holiday hiatus in January to a full house with old and new friends alike! Thank you so much Alejandro Cárdenas-Avendaño (PHY) and Christopher Bambic *24 (AST) for two great talks! Alejandro gave us an overview of gravity - the history of its discovery and how it interacts with matter - and the new ways astrophysicists are observing the universe by “listening” to cataclysmic events (like black holes crashing into each other!) that create gravitational waves. Chris talked about coronae, which are plumes of energy and plasma that are accelerated by the twisting lines of magnetic fields. Objects large and small have coronae, including the supermassive black holes at the centers of some galaxies. We had great discussions about the nature of galaxies in the universe, and some continuing friendly competition at the trivia that evening. Thank you to everyone who came out, and join us next month on March 20th for more astronomy!
