MIT Astrophysics Colloquium 11/15/2022: Understanding Planetary Evolution with TESS (Speaker: Joseph Rodriguez, Michigan State University)

Abstract: The success of transit and RV surveys have shifted the exoplanet field from pure discovery to a combination of discovery, demographic analysis, and detailed characterization, especially for exoplanet atmospheres….

MIT Astrophysics Colloquium 9/27/2022: Observational Insights into the Natal Environments of Planets (Speaker: Jane Huang, University of Michigan)

The discoveries of thousands of exoplanets have presented a number of puzzles about their properties and origins. Until recently, though, many of the assumptions made by planet formation models could…

Particle Stirring in the Inner Regions of Protoplanetary Disks by a Giant Planet (Speaker: Jaehan Bae, University of Michigan)

Abstract: The initial stages of planet formation are slowed down in a turbulent disk. In particular, the growth rate of 10-100 km-sized planetesimals into larger bodies by accreting mm- to…

Frontiers in Massive Stellar Death (speaker: Sean Couch, Michigan State University)

Refreshments at 3:45pm, talk begins at 4:00pm Abstract: Core-collapse supernovae are the luminous explosions that herald the death of massive stars. While core-collapse supernovae are observed on a daily basis…

Missing Baryons and Metals in Extended Halos of Galaxies (speaker: Joel Bregman, University of Michigan)

Abstract: Hot gas density distributions can be fitted to the X-ray emission and absorption observations of the Milky Way to determine the mass and metallicity, mainly within 50 kpc. We…

The Increasing Complexity of Exoplanet Atmospheres (speaker: Emily Rauscher, University of Michigan)

Abstract: We are now in the era of exoplanet characterization. Over a decade ago the first exoplanet atmosphere was detected and since then we have been gathering compositional and temperature…

Circumgalactic Precipitation (speaker: Mark Voit, Michigan State University)

Abstract: Galaxies are commonly thought to acquire much of the gas that fuels star formation through streams of cold gas that flow along filaments of larger-scale structure. However, the universe’s…

Astrophysics Brown Bag Lunch Talk (speaker: Ashley King, University of Michigan)

Astrophysics “lunch” talk — note date and time! The Regulation of Black Hole Winds and Jets Across the Mass Scale Abstract: Mechanical power in black holes of all masses is…
