IAA Lecture 27 November – Dr John Quinn, UCD – “The High Energy Milky Way”

We all know the Milky Way as that band of light across the sky (when we can see it, away from all the light pollution), marking the millions of stars in the plane of the galaxy. But we can also study it in other wavelengths, from radio waves to the higher energy bands of extreme ultraviolet, X-Rays and Gamma Rays.

These reveal an amazing array of fantastic objects and structures, which will be the topic of this lecture.

The lecture is free and open to all, including free refreshments. Venue: the Bell Lecture Theatre, Physics Building, Queen's University, Belfast, at 7.30 p.m.

Thanks to the Astrophysics Research Centre, QUB, for help in hosting these lectures.
