Next Monthly Meeting: December 4, 2020

A Cosmic Shadow Theater


Emmanuel Schaan, PhD

Chamberlain postdoctoral fellow at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory


The afterglow from the big bang, the "cosmic microwave background", acts as a backlight in a shadow theatre where galaxies are the protagonists. New experiments are underway to observe these galaxy silhouettes, in order to detect the elusive gas surrounding galaxies, and to shed light on the dark energy.  

Dr. Schaan received his PhD from Princeton University.
