Physics Colloquium

"Neutron Stars"

Presented by Dany Page, Instituto de Astronomía, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México

Tuesday, November 1, 2011, 3:30 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

"I discuss why 2010 can be considered as the Year of the Neutron Star. This includes discovery of a neutron star with mass about two solar masses, PSR J1614-2230. Also, the first direct observation of cooling of a neutron star, from Cassiopeia A, which is especially rapid."
