The Mystery and Promise of Fast Radio Bursts
Date: Thursday, April 24th
Time: 2:30 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin
Speaker: Albert Stebbins, FermiLab
Abstract: The newly discovered phenomena of Fast Radio Bursts is discussed as well as their possible origins. If these bursts originate at cosmological distances then they may provide a tool to probe a variety of different phenomena apart from the bursts themselves. This includes neutrino masses, cosmological distances, and the intergalactic medium on parsec scales.
