The Galaxy Lunch Series is held every Friday during the academic year, at 12:20pm, in Space Sciences room 622. In general, there will be an hour-long talk/discussion on topics related to galactic and extragalactic astronomy, and large-scale structure. The audience consists of faculty members, research staff, as well as graduate and undergraduate students, so talks should be at a level accessible to most. Galaxy Lunch is open to talks from all members of the Cornell Astronomy department, as well as to visiting scientists and speakers from different disciplines/departments.
For Spring 2017, the speakers will be faculty members who are actively involved in the CCAT-prime project, and graduate students from Astro 7620. The main theme of this semester are: what we can learn from building CCAT-prime, studies of galaxy evolution and cosmology using intensity mapping, designs and science questions of various existing and planned facilities, and recent advances in the field.
If you are interested in giving a talk, please contact Daisy Leung.
