Race to Embrace

Thursday, November 5, 2020 (All day) to Thursday, November 12, 2020 (All day)

Join the Cedar Valley Angels for a VIRTUAL RACE to raise funds and awareness! Walk, run, jog or even skip your way through a 5K race (or bike a 15K) to show your support for the foster community in the Cedar Valley. Together we can (virtually) EMBRACE the children and caretakers that are a part of the foster care system and give them the community, empowerment and hope they deserve to succeed.

Physics Colloquium

Wednesday, November 11, 2020 - 4:00 pm

On August 17, 2017 astrophysicists made the first detection of a transient event with simultaneous electromagnetic and gravitational wave radiation.  This event, GW170817, was identified as the merger of two neutron stars, also known as a kilonova.  The mergers of neutron stars had been known to exist prior to 2017, but the new data obtained through a large number of observations has provided new constraints on modeling these systems.  This new information is critical to improving kilonova models as they are extremely complicated systems that require researchers to model strong gravity, hydrodynamics, radiation transport, atomic physics, and nuclear physics in extreme conditions that are hard or impossible to obtain in laboratories on Earth.  These new models allow astronomers to come closer to answering long standing questions including the origin site of heavy elements, like gold and uranium, in the universe.  In this talk I will give an overview of kilonova and describe the how astrophysicists at Los Alamos National Laboratory used this new observational data and state of the art computer modeling to study neutron star mergers and their impact on the evolution of the universe.
