The Weirdest Stars in the Universe
Emily Levesque, University of Colorado
How big can a star get? Why would a star only PRETEND to explode? Can you hide one star inside another? During this talk Dr. Levesque will take you on a tour of some of the weirdest stars in the universe, from our nearest neighbors to stars more than 13 billion light years away. She will discuss the history of stellar astronomy, delve into about some present-day observing techniques and exciting new discoveries, and explore some of the most puzzling and exotic objects being studied by astronomers today.
Hosted by Dr. Frank Summers. Recorded live on June 2, 2015 at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, MD, USA
