SciCafe: Modeling the Origins of Planets, Stars, and Galaxies
February 6, 2013
At scales of thousands of light years, stars are born, galaxies form, and supernovae explode. Our understanding of the origins of the Earth and beyond relies increasingly on the comparison of numerical models to ground and space-based observations. Astrophysicist Mordecai-Mark Mac Low, lead curator of the Hayden Space Show, Journey to the Stars, will use visualizations of supercomputer simulations and observations to share some of the latest advances and insights on these questions.
