Science Interest Group (SIG) Talk: Kara Beauchamp: "Exploring the Rosette Nebula"

Event Detail
Date: Thursday, March 2nd
Time: 11:10 am
Description:

The Rosette Nebula is a region of our galaxy full of gas and dust where many stars have recently formed. This region can be imaged in different wavelengths of light, and different wavelengths provide different kinds of information about region, such as the temperature of the region and its chemical composition. By measuring the brightness and the polarization of radio waves, we can learn about the density of electrons and the magnetic field in the region. This talk will discuss properties of the Rosette Nebula and the analysis of radio wave polarization data to determine the magnetic field in the region.
