Russell Frank Astronomy Lecture Series
Each semester we host this very successful public lecture series, featuring a prominent astrophysicist. For more details, visit our Russell Frank Astronomy Lecture Series page.
Special Public Lectures
Occassionally we are honored to be able to host a very distinguished scholar who is visiting UNLV or has been mentor to one of our faculty members. Videos of those lectures will be made available shortly.
Every semester we invite distinguished speakers who work at the frontiers of physics & astronomy. Forums are held in the conference room of the Bigelow Physics Building BPB-217, Fridays from 3:45PM to 4:45PM unless otherwise noted in the schedule. They are open to the public and refreshments are served at 3:30PM.
The astronomy group holds a weekly journal club focusing on either student presentations of their research or talks summarizing selected papers from annual review articles or recent astro-ph postings.
Every Friday at 10am, all astronomy group members meet to discuss new research papers from astro-ph over coffee. We participate in the Vox Charta voting system.
