AAVSO “Superstar Astronomers” with Dr. Mike Grudić

Webinar with guest astronomer Dr. Grudić: 18:00 to 19:00 UT: Star formation is fundamental to the formation of planets and galaxies. Many aspects of star formation remain deeply mysterious to astrophysicists. The equations can only be solved with numerical simulations, and Dr. Grudić will outline a procedure for taking these equations and translating them into a supercomputer. He will then introduce the STARFORGE simulations, a new generation of high-resolution, multi-physics star formation simulations, and discuss some on the nature of star formation that we have gained. Dr. Grudić is a NASA Hubble Fellow at Carnegie Observatories in Pasadena, CA. He is a founding member of the STARFORGE collaboration, and specializes in the theory of star formation and developing new methods for astrophysical simulations.
