"The Universe Invisible to the Human Eye!"

"Multi wavelength Universe, as observed with the
telescopes of the 21st century"

by Dr. Masha Chernyakova of DCU

June 13th 2016
Venue: Physics Building Trinity College Dublin

About the Lecture

Until the 20th century, astronomers learned virtually all they knew about sources in the sky from only the tiny fraction of electromagnetic  radiation that is visible to the eye. As astronomers have discovered how to collect radiation outside this part of the spectrum, they have been able to learn much more about the Universe. Many objects reveal different aspects of their structure and behavior at different wavelengths. Other objects are completely invisible at one wavelength, yet are clearly visible at another.

The 21st century was marked with the  invention of the telescopes able to observe Universe at extremely high energies, which allowed to study the most violent processes in the Universe.

In addition to that the sensitivity of the new telescopes at more traditional energy range became so high that allowed to study in unprecedented details formation of planets, stars and galaxies.

In my talk I will discuss the modern way to study the Universe and some of the most fascinating results that have been achieved.

About the Lecturer

Dr. Masha Chernyakova got her PhD in the Astro Space Centre of Lebedev Physical Institute, Moscow. After that she worked for several years in the INTEGRAL Science Data Centre in Geneva, where she combines user support with active research in high energy astrophysics.

In 2007 she moved to Ireland, first as a Schroedinger fellow in Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, and later as a lecturer in Dublin City University. During all this time she continued her research of such high energy objects as gamma-ray loud binaries and central region of our Galaxy, successfully combining theoretical studies with the observational campaigns.






After the lecture there will be a social reception in The Lombard and we encourage all of you to come along for a chat.
All are welcome to attend and free food will be kindly provided by The Lombard.

A prize draw will be held after the lecture.
