Shredded Stars and Gamma-ray Bursts

October 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Lowell Discovery Telescope is an ideal tool for exploring dramatic cosmological events, such as the shredding of stars by black holes and the emission of gamma-ray bursts when neutron stars collide. Tonight, Dr. Brad Cenko, Research Astrophysicist of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and University of Maryland, along with graduate students Erica Hammerstein and Brendan O’Connor will join Lowell Historian Kevin Schindler to discuss these phenomena.
