RYSE Youth Center in Richmond, California and SSL have teamed up to make two short documentary films on projects here at the Lab.
One on Stardust at Home:
and the other on SETI at Home:
These are part of a larger project.
Christoph Weniger (Max-Planck-Institut für Physik, Germany) will present the SSL colloquium on May 3rd: `Recently, we identified a tentative gamma-ray line in the Galactic center
observations of the Fermi LAT, which would be an unequivocal smoking-gun
signature for dark matter annihilation in the Universe. One year after
discovery, the signature is still as ambiguous as it could be. I discuss
recent experimental and theoretical developments and show how the situation
could be clarified until end of next year.’
Lindsay Glesener (UC Berkeley, Space Sciences Laboratory) will present the SSL colloquium on Friday, April 26, 2013: “Studying X-Rays from Solar Flares with the FOXSI Rocket.” More info
Join us for Cal Day, Saturday, April 20th, the one day each year that Space Sciences Lab opens its doors to the public. Shuttles will be transporting the public every 20 minutes from Mining Circle on campus to SSL. Hours of activities 11 am – 5 pm.
Walking Tours See UC Berkeley’s cutting-edge space science research lab. Learn about the illustrious 50-year history of NASA missions, visit our 60′ high bay, the cosmochemistry laboratories that analyzed lunar samples, a clean room where a Hubble instrument was built, and a Nobel laureate’s office. Tours start at 11 am and leave every 20 minutes to 4:40pm.
Surfin the Solar Wind Participate in fun activities including an trying out an infrared camera, a solar Jeopardy game, and a coronal mass ejection video launcher. Hang out with cool ultraviolet wave “Sonny.” Teen Solar Investigators will be hosting the booth. This event is specifically for teens.
Talks and Panels below will be in the Addition Conference Room
