Welcome back from spring break! We’ll be meeting again at the regular time and place to discuss astronomy and gravitational physics.
- RIP Stephen Hawking (by Roger Penrose)
- testing gravity with MESSENGER
- Juno on Jupiter’s jet streams. We also discussed Jupiter’s Red Spot: Here is a nice video explaining why turbulence tends to be confined to 2D in a rotating frame:
- INT-JINA Symposium INT-18-72R First multi-messenger observations of a neutron star merger and its implications for nuclear physics. This was a small workshop at the INT in Seattle bringing together LIGO people with nuclear theorists and experimentalists to discuss the resent NSNS merger event GW170817. Talks are available online now via the link.
