This speaker series is sponsored by the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences and co-sponsored by Hopa Mountain and Museum of the Rockies.
Microbes, Carbon, and Climate: Impacts of a Changing Cryosphere
What can we learn about the origin of supermassive black holes from studying small galaxies? Dr. Amy Reines, Assistant Professor of Physics at MSU, will discuss how observations of little “dwarf” galaxies using world-class telescopes are being used to reveal the birth and growth of black holes that can reach masses upwards of a billion times the Sun’s mass.
Free and open to the public via Zoom.
