Lightbox Gallery Talk: A Look at Magnetized Star Formation through Radio Eyes


Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Musuems, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

Throughout the Cambridge Science Festival (April 15–24), join us each day in the Lightbox Gallery at 12:30pm to explore the science of light, looking, and conservation.

About today’s program:
What do infant stars look like at radio wavelengths? And how do magnetic fields affect the formation of these protostars, some of which will eventually evolve into stars like our own sun? Chat Hull, a Jansky Fellow in the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, will take visitors on a tour of magnetized stellar birth through the eyes of ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array), the world’s most powerful radio telescope.

Can’t make it to the gallery talk? An interactive project related to the theme discussed in the talk will be on view all that day in the Lightbox Gallery.

This event will take place in the Lightbox Gallery, Level 5.

Free with museums admission. This talk is limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before the talk, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.

Please meet in the Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk. Museums staff will be on hand to collect tickets.
