Molly Peeples visit

Molly Peeples from Space Telescope Science Institute / Johns Hopkins visited us for a week as part of the Role models in physics program supported by the US Embassy in Prague. She gave a talk on
“Exploring the Universe with Space Telescopes and Supercomputers” and a second talk about “The Universe at Low Density: How Cosmic Gas Flows Build Galaxies”. She talked with students.

Thomas Janka visit

Thomas Janka (MPA Garching) visited to give the department colloquium on core-collapse supernova explosions with a sequel science coffee discussion on kicks, fallback, and nucleosynthesis. He also talked with members of the department. Great to have him visit!

Nadia Zakamska visit

Nadia Zakamska (Johns Hopkins) visited our group and the department this week, giving talks on supermassive black holes and exoplanets. She met with students and postdocs and we also discussed some exciting stellar science. The visit was organized with the help of Role Models in Physics small grant from the US Embassy in Prague.

Jess McIver visit in Prague

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.
