Open to the public

Dr. Maria Weber from the Department of Math and Sciences at Delta State University will present "Magnetic Furnaces: The Secret Lives of Middle-Aged Stars."

We live with a star – the Sun! Stars have a secret life beyond what we can see with the naked eye. Some slowly fizzle out over billions of years, and some go out with a bang. Join astrophysicist Dr. Maria Weber as she discusses the lifecycle and magnetism of stars like the Sun, which are living out their middle-aged years between birth and death building intense magnetism in their deep interiors – magnetism which may impact their orbiting worlds. Find out how well we can predict the Sun’s magnetic behavior, if we should be concerned, and how our work to understand the Sun helps us better understand habitable worlds throughout the galaxy
