All LASP science seminars are open to visitors and our colleagues in other departments.
Current Schedule (expanded):
|Speaker:||Robert E. Ergun (LASP)|
|Date & Time:||8/25 , 4:00 PM||Location:||SPSC W120|
The Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission has had its first full year in orbit taking science data. After more than a decade of development, MMS has proven to be a superlative four-satellite space physics laboratory with the highest cadence and most accurate 3D plasma measurements ever made. In this talk, I review the MMS mission and its history, highlight the recent scientific advances, and talk about future efforts.
|Speaker:||Stanley Owocki (Bartol Research Inst, U. Delaware)|
|Date & Time:||9/1 , 4:00 PM||Location:||SPSC W120|
Modern spectropolarimetry has revealed that about 10% of massive, luminous, hot O, B and A-type stars harbor large-scale, organized (often predominantly dipolar) magnetic fields ranging in dipolar strength from a few hundred to tens of thousand Gauss. This talk will discuss the role of such fields in channeling and trapping the radiatively driven winds of massive stars.
|Speaker:||Tom Woods (LASP)|
