Our Magnetic Universe – Virtual Lecture
Is our Universe a gigantic magnet? How do magnetic fields in the interstellar space affect us and our own galaxy? Join our lecture to learn about the invisible and mysterious cosmic magnetism!
- Date: Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2022
- Time: 7:00-8:00 PM PST
- Location: Virtual. The event URL can be found at the bottom of the EventBrite registration confirmation email
- Speaker: Prof. Susan Clark (Stanford/KIPAC)
- Topic: Our Magnetic Universe
- Our Earth is magnetic, and so is our Universe. From stars to galaxies to intergalactic space, magnetic fields in fact thread the cosmos. Our home galaxy, the Milky Way, hosts a magnetic field that helps shape the interstellar medium — the gas between stars and out of which new stars are born. Join Prof. Susan Clark on a tour of magnetism in the Milky Way galaxy and beyond, and learn how we measure the invisible magnetic fields in interstellar space.
