We had a pleasure to host Bernhard Müller from Monash University who gave a special relativistic seminar on “Unravelling the mysteries of exploding massive stars”.
Jess McIver from Caltech visited Prague and gave two talks: “Astrophysics with LIGO and gravitational waves” and “Gravitational-wave astrophysics: a new era of discovery”. In addition, she outline some of the problems of contemporary physics including diversity and representation of the population and discussed these issues with the students. The visit was supported by small grant “Role models in physics” from the US Embassy in Prague.
Tomás Müller from University of Southampton gave a talk on “Type Ia Supernova Cosmology: infrared light as a new window” during our regular science coffee time slot.
In the past couple days we hosted Jim Fuller from Caltech, who gave talks at our departmental seminar and at the Astronomical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences.
