Dr Jorick Vink

Lecture: 18th Feb, 7.30 p.m. by Dr Jorick Vink, Armagh Observatory: “Star Formation in the Milky Way and in the early Universe”

We are delighted to have Jorick back again to give another of his excellent lectures. Jorick is a Senior Research Astronomer at Armagh, specialising in very massive stars and star formation. This is a fascinating subject, as we are constantly discovering older and older stars, including one which had a nominal age older than that of the universe itself. But within the error bars of the estimate, it just fell within the estimated age of the universe, which is 13.8 billion years. 
 
The lecture is free and open to all, including free refreshments. Venue: 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.
