Solar Probe Presentation at KHS, Thursday, May 24, 2:30-4:00

Dr. Benjamin Chandran, professor at the Space Science Center at University of New Hampshire, will join the KHS Science Club in the auditorium to discuss his work with NASA and the challenges involved in data collection during an important mission to send a probe to study the sun. Students, parents and community members are invited to attend.

Professor Chandran received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1997. His research is in the areas of theoretical plasma physics and theoretical astrophysics, particularly problems at the interface between these two fields. His main interests are plasma turbulence, the role of turbulence in the solar corona and other astrophysical settings, and the evolution of baryonic matter in clusters of galaxies. He has also worked on cosmic-ray propagation, particle acceleration at shocks, and the origin of astrophysical magnetic fields. His research program is supported by grants from NASA, NSF, and DOE, and offers research opportunities for undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars.
