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. Christopher Russell received his Ph.D. in Theoretical Astrophysics in 2013 with dissertation on Using 3D Dynamic Models to Reproduce X-ray Properties of Colliding Wind Binaries under the supervision of Prof. Owocki (prior to that he also completed B.S. in Physics at UD with concentration in Astronomy and Astrophysics and Minors in Mathematics and Computer Science).
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.
