Event Details

Although cataclysmic explosions and the fiery furnaces of massive stars are attention-grabbers, many of the most critically important events and physical processes in astronomy take place in the coolest objects in the cosmos: regions within which stars and planets are born and the seeds of life are planted, as just one example.

Please join our hosts, Tony Darnell, Alberto Conti, and Carol Christian, as they discuss with Dr. Margaret Meixner and Klaus Pontoppidan, both from the Space Telescope Science Institute, the science that can be revealed by an observatory operating at the longest infrared wavelengths.
