Princeton University astrophysicist and 2012 TED Senior Fellow Lucianne Walkowicz speaks Friday, Jan. 24th at USU's Science Unwrapped. All are welcome to the free talk.

 

The Tempestuous Tantrums of Stellar Flares

Featured speaker Lucianne Walkowicz, a Princeton University astrophysicist, works on NASA's Kepler mission, studying starspots and, as she terms it, "the tempestuous tantrums of stellar flares."

The 2012 Senior TED Fellow kicks off Science Unwrapped's Spring 2014 "Science Superpowers" series with the talk, "Kepler and the Exoplanet Revolution." All ages are welcome to the free event.

"I'll share what's involved in getting a scientific mission of this scope off the ground," Walkowicz says. "We'll explore how the Kepler mission has transformed exoplanet and stellar science in just a few short years."

Following Walkowiciz's talk, Science Unwrapped attendees are invited to enjoy free refreshments and a variety of hands-on learning activities.

Join us at 7 p.m. in the Emert Auditorium (Room 130) of the Eccles Science Learning Center.
