IAP 2020 — Paul Hemphill: Heavier Than The Sun, Smaller Than A City: The Neutron Star (1/23/2020)

Thursday January 23, 2020 2:00 pm

2:00-2:30 pm

Neutron stars are some of the most extreme objects in the known Universe. More massive than the Sun, but just a few miles across, they have some of the highest densities, strongest magnetic fields, and highest temperatures of any celestial objects. In this talk I will give an overview of the origins and properties of the various types of neutron stars that we observe, as well as how we can detect them and their usefulness for astrophysics as a whole.

No enrollment limit for talk, no advance sign-up required.
