Cosmic fireworks in radio waves baner balewadi
The Sun, the Moon and the twinkling stars are our everyday view of celestial objects with human eyes. But what if we had eyes that could detect radio waves? Does the Universe look any different in radio from what we see? Radio telescopes are our “radio eyes” and the world’s largest such telescope is located close to our dear Pune – the Giant Metrewave Radio
Telescope (GMRT). This talk will describe how astronomers and astrophysicists use the state-of-the-art telescope to solve the mysteries of exploding stars, super-massive black holes and colliding galaxy clusters. Come and discover the secrets of our Universe with Dr. Ruta Kale, an astronomer at the National Centre for Radio Astrophysics of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research.Pune ‘Science on Tap’ started as an idea to bring together scientists and the public in a casual environment. The aim is to get people talking about science while having a beer, and to help everyone realise that science and scientists are neither scary nor boring.Great State Aleworks is proud to be associated with Science on Tap, Pune.
