The Dynamic Local Universe

Tuesday February 23, 2021
2:00 pm

 Presenter:  Dr. Louis Strigari (Texas A&M)
 Series:  Nuclear, Particle, Astroparticle and Cosmology (NUPAC) Seminars
 Abstract:  New three-dimensional measurements of the positions and velocities of stars, in particular from the Gaia observatory, have provided unprecedented information on the dynamics of the Milky Way and nearby dwarf galaxies. I will discuss how these observations inform hierarchical structure formation, the Milky Way, the Local Group of galaxies, and the nature of dark matter. I will discuss what we can expect from future Gaia data and astrometric observations.
 Host:  Dinesh Loomba
 Location:  Zoom
