Exploring Nature's Extreme Accelerators

Friday, April 5th, 2019
Speaker: Julie McEnery NASA
Cosmic rays, neutrinos and gamma rays provide three different ways to identify and explore locations of the most efficient astrophysical particle accelerators in the universe. In the past decade we have transformed our understanding of the extreme universe. Ground-breaking gamma-ray observations with Fermi, HAWC and IACTs have uncovered many new classes of sources and provided detailed information on these objects; IceCube has broken new ground by observing astrophysical neutrinos; and we have refined our understanding of the origin of cosmic rays. In this talk, I will discuss some of the recent breakthroughs in the study of cosmic accelerators.

A reception and a concert will follow the colloquium
