Astronomy Colloquium
Magnetic Fields and the Early Stages of Star Formation
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 4421 Sterling Hall, Coffee and cookies 3:30 PM , Talk begins at 3:45 PM
Speaker: Dick Crutcher, University of IL
Abstract: The role and importance of magnetic fields in star formation has been uncertain ever since their initial detection in the interstellar medium almost 70 years ago. I will discuss techniques for measuring interstellar magnetic fields in molecular clouds, briefly describe some of the principal theories for the formation and evolution of molecular clouds, and discuss the current status and future possibilities of observational testing of the theoretical predictions of star formation theories.
