The Ghosts of Stars Past: A Public Astronomy Event

November 17, 2023
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Pupin Hall, 538 W. 120 St., New York, NY 10027 301

Join us in Pupin Hall on Friday, November 17, at 6:00pm for our first public astronomy event of the 2023-2024 academic year!   

Columbia Astronomy PhD candidate Jennifer Mead will be giving a public talk titled "Tales from the Stellar Graveyard: The Ghosts of Stars Past":

"Even on the large scales of the universe, life and death are intricately intertwined. In this spooky post-Halloween story, we will talk about how astronomers analyze light from the distant universe to unlock the secrets hidden in the tombs of dead stars and how, from the ashes of these stars, new life emerges."

We'll kick off the evening at 6:00pm with some astronomy trivia, followed by Jennifer's talk and Q&A. From 7:10-8:10pm, we will be outside stargazing on College Walk (weather permitting).

We hope to see many of you in Pupin 301 next Friday!
