    Gas Flows in the Milky Way Halo

    Guest: Prof. Andrew Fox, Space Telescope Science Institute
    Thursday, September 2, 2021 3:55 pm - 4:55 pm
    Location: Zoom Meeting

    Gas flows play crucial roles in galaxy evolution. Inflowing gas provides fuel for star formation, whereas outflowing gas carries away the products of earlier generations of stars. In the Milky Way, we have a front-row seat for viewing the multi-phase gas flows that circulate material from the disk to the halo and back. I will focus on two prominent examples of gas flows: the Fermi Bubbles, a giant pair of outflowing lobes surrounding the Galactic Center, and the Magellanic Stream, an interwoven tail of filaments trailing the Magellanic Clouds as they orbit the Milky Way. I will discuss recent ultraviolet observations from the Hubble Space Telescope, which have provided new insight into the origin of the Fermi Bubbles and the Magellanic Stream. These observations have helped reveal the mechanisms by which the Milky Way exchanges mass with its surroundings and fuels its ongoing star formation.

    Research Grant Proposals Reviewers Dynamics

    Guest: Prof. Burtrand I. Lee, PhD., FACerS, Office Research Grants, American Chemical Society

    As we all are concerned with maintaining stable research support, we seek the best strategy for winning competitive research grants. It becomes imperative to better understand the evaluation process. While in the midst of the ever-increasing competition, the most popular evaluation means is peer review. Such basic questions as how the peer review is carried out, how the reviewers selected, what do the reviewers think when they encounter a research grant proposal to review, and what they like/don’t like are some of the questions that will be discussed. Other pertinent questions are expected to come from the listeners and participants.

    The Local Gaseous Universe

    Guest: Prof. Mary Putman, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Columbia University
    Thursday, September 23, 2021 3:55 pm - 4:55 pm
    Location: Zoom Meeting

    Most of the normal matter in the universe is in gaseous form. Stars form in galaxies when some of this gas settles into the central regions of their potential wells. In this talk, I will discuss the distribution of gas in and around galaxies in the nearby universe using ultraviolet absorption line and hydrogen emission line observations. The gas surrounding the Milky Way will be compared to other galaxies, and the gas within dwarf galaxies, the smallest galaxies in the universe, will be considered in the context of the gas surrounding larger galaxies. The flow of gaseous matter dictates the structure and fate of all types of galaxies.
