Michael Shay and collaborators find surprising event in turbulent space
Scientists have discovered an entirely new magnetic phenomenon in the outer reaches of Earth’s magnetic field with the help of four NASA spacecraft, according to a new study published in the journal Nature.
A new partnership with the Southeastern Association for Research in Astronomy (SARA) gives researchers and stargazers from the University of Delaware and nearby Mount Cuba Astronomical Observatory access to three far-flung telescopes and the superior perspectives they offer on the night sky.
Dr. Peter Thejll received his Ph.D. in astrophysics in 1989 under the supervision of Prof. H. L. Shipman. His thesis research was focused on white dwarfs. He was a Carlsberg Fellow at the Niels Bohr Institute and worked at the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics. Dr. Thejll currently is a senior scientist at the Danish Meteorological Institute in Copenhagen.
Contributions to the University of Delaware may be designated for a particular Department. Gifts help us support activities that would be difficult to fund from our regular budget, such as scholarships, graduate and undergraduate student awards, support for students to travel to conferences, and outreach programs.
