Inflation

The Cosmology Interest Group is a sub-group
of the Lincoln Hills Astronomy Group. 
Meetings
are
in the form of a lecture or video series, focusing
on
some aspect of cosmology; followed by a spirited discussion.  There is no need to be proficient in math
or physics formulas.  We try to keep things as simple
as possible, so everyone can grasp the topic being presented.  This is a fun group with lots very smart members to answer just about any questions you

may have about the cosmos.

Our Next Meeting

 
Monday, May 20
in the Orchard Creek Fine
Arts room at 6:45 PM,  Ed Miller continues his
series on radio astronomy with lectures:


#15 Supernovas and the Death of Stars
Chances are you would agree with astron-
omers that gravity is the single most important
force or event shaping the world as you know it. 
But the second most important?  That would be supernovas, and nothing you know would be here
 without them.  Learn how super massive stars can explode at the end of their lives, releasing energy
that outshines 10 billion suns.

#16 Radio Stars and Early Interferometers
When radio astronomers discovered a sky full
 of small radio sources of unknown origin, they
built telescopes using multiple antennas to try to understand them.  Learn how and why inter-
ferometers were developed and how they have
helped astronomers study quasars, those
    massively bright, star-like objects that scientists now know only occur in galaxies whose gas is
falling into a super massive black hole.
