Join us for a talk and discussion on "Knowing our own Star - the Sun" by Avyarthana Ghosh,Research Scholar, IUCAA
About the Event:
Avyarthana Ghosh will talk about the Sun. We all see the Sun in our Sky as a yellow disc, but it is much more to it. It is one of the millions of millions of stars in our Universe, but then it is the one which is most beneficial to us, supports the very essence of life on Earth. It is really interesting to know who it is and how it works, how was it formed and how long it will be for us. The Sun is comprised of layers, each of which has a different characteristic and functioning. Moreover, it emits in several wavelengths-covering the entire domain from gamma-rays to radio frequencies, though we see only the Visible range by naked eyes. However, if we use telescopes sensitive to the other wavelengths, we see that it is 'hot and happening', beyond what we can even imagine! She will also talk on the upcoming Aditya-L1 mission which is India's maiden space mission dedicated to the Sun.
