AAVSO “Superstar Astronomers” with Dr. Michelle Thaller

Join Dr. Thaller and AAVSO on Zoom from 18:00-19:00 UT for “The Most Extreme Variable Stars (and Webb Update).”

NICER, the Neutron Star Interior Composition Explorer, is a small NASA mission, but the discoveries pouring out of it are blowing the minds of both observational and theoretical astronomers. What do the jets coming off a pulsar really look like? How do the jets change? Have we discovered a “quark star?” We’ll talk about all this and, sure, do an update about the Webb telescope too.

Dr. Michelle Thaller is an astrophysicist who has worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA Headquarters, and the Goddard Space Flight Center, where she is currently the liaison between the Office of Communication and the Science Directorate. Dr. Thaller has even given “TEDx” talks about astronomy.
