General Meeting for October 12th 2018.
Our guest speaker will be Paul Delaney. Paul has been a guest of the club several times and his talks are always informative and educational. This time around, Paul will be speaking about variable stars and binary star systems.
Stars have social lives too!
Stellar evolution has generated (almost) all the elements in the universe with the notable exceptions of hydrogen and helium. This process has allowed for planet formation and the existence of life. Yet despite their pivotal place in the grand scheme of the universe, we talk very little about stars let alone their habit of forming in multiple associations and clusters. This talk will focus on the 101 of star formation and reveal the social habits of stars especially in regards binary star systems.
