Science Inquiry Lecture - Our Mysterious Star: Probing the Heart of the Solar System

Join MOR and the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences as we explore cutting-edge science topics, their latest developments, and their relevance to society through speaker presentations followed by an engaging question and answer session.

What is current research revealing about how our sun works? Dr. Charles Kankelborg, Professor of Physics at MSU, will discuss how his observations of the sun using rockets and satellites–as well as current solar missions–are trying to uncover the mechanisms of energy storage, release, and transport in the solar atmosphere, and what it all means for us on Earth.

Hager Auditorium lectures have a limited capacity and are open on a first-come, first-served basis. The doors open 30 minutes before each lecture. Attendees may not save seats for others.
