BURRELL OBSERVATORY SERIES:
COSMIC TRAIN WRECKS:  WHEN GALAXIES COLLIDE
Dr. Jillian Scudder, Assistant Professor Physics, Oberlin College
Friday, September 7, 7:30 pm
Mainstage Theatre, Kleist Center for Art & Drama, 95 E. Bagley Rd, Berea

The Burrell Observatory is proud to host an open house program featuring Dr. Jillian Scudder, Assistant Professor of Physics at Oberlin College.  This lecture examines galaxy collisions.  Galaxies exist in clusters, and as a result, they occasionally “collide”.  In fact, the Milky Way Galaxy has collided with a number of smaller galaxies.  The result of these collisions will be topic of Dr. Scudder’s lecture.

After the lecture, the Burrell Observatory will be open for viewing, weather permitting.

For questions, contact the Observatory Director at gkader@bw.edu, or the Department of Physics and Astronomy at 440-826-2312.

BURRELL OBSERVATORY SERIES:  HOW COSMOLOGY HAS CHALLENGED THE STANDARD MODEL
Dr. Glenn Starkman, Distinguished University Professor, CWRU
Thursday, October 11, 7:30pm
Mainstage Theatre, Kleist Center for Art & Drama, 95 E. Bagley Road, Berea

The Burrell Observatory series presents Dr. Glenn Starkman, Distinguished University Professor at CWRU.  Dr. Starkman will present a lecture on How Cosmology Has Challenged the Standard Model of particle physics. The study of the origin of the universe has called into question some of our most closely held understanding of fundamentals of matter.  Reconciling these challenges is on the cutting edge of physics.

After the lecture, the Burrell Observatory will be open for viewing, weather permitting.

For questions, contact the Observatory Director at gkader@bw.edu, or the Department of Physics and Astronomy at 440-826-2312.

BURRELL OBSERVATORY SERIES:  NEUTRON STARS:  A LABORATORY FOR EXOTIC MATTER
Dr. Veronica Dexheimer, Assistant Professor of Physics, Kent State University
Friday, November 2, 7:30pm
Center for Innovation and Growth, 340 Front Street, Berea

The Burrell Observatory series presents Dr. Veronica Dexheimer from Kent State University, who will present a lecture on Neutron stars.  Neutron stars are some of the most exotic objects in the universe.  They are the remnants of the explosion of very massive stars.  They spin hundreds of times each second and they are so dense that a single teaspoon would weigh a billion tons. 

After the lecture, the Burrell Observatory will be open for viewing, weather permitting.

BURRELL OBSERVATORY SERIES:  THE CHEMICAL EVOLUTION OF THE MILKY WAY GALAXY
Dr. John Laird, Professor & Chair, Department of Physics & Astronomy, Bowling Green State University
Friday, January 18, 7:30 pm
Mainstage Theatre, Kleist Center for Art & Drama, 95 E. Bagley Road, Berea

The Burrell Observatory presents Dr. John Laird, Professor & Chair, Department of Physics & Astronomy at Bowling Green State University, who will present a lecture on how the Milky Way galaxy has chemically changed over time.  He and his collaborators have developed a technique for analyzing very low-quality noisy spectra, allowing them to probe the origin of the chemical elements and the history of the Milky Way galaxy.

After the lecture, the Burrell Observatory will be open for viewing, weather permitting.

BURRELL OBSERVATORY SERIES:  STARS & CLUSTERS RIPPED FROM THE GALAXIES
Dr. Patrick Durrell, Distinguished Professor, Physics & Astronomy, Youngstown State University
Friday, April 12, 7:30 pm
Center for Innovation and Growth, 340 Front Street, Berea

The Burrell Observatory presents Dr. Patrick Burrell, Distinguished Professor of Physics at Youngstown State University, who will present a lecture on how stars and clusters of stars are ripped from their home galaxies. Intergalactic stars are thought to have originated in galaxies like other stars, but later expelled as the result of either colliding galaxies or of a multiple star system travelling too close to a supermassive black hole.  

After the lecture, the Burrell Observatory will be open for viewing, weather permitting.

For questions, contact the Observatory Director at gkader@bw.edu, or the Department of Physics and Astronomy at 440-826-2312.
