Dark Energy, Getting to Mars and Protecting Coral Reefs

How to Get (More of Us) To Mars?

We are going to Mars - but how? More importantly, who gets to go?

We will take a look at the usual suspects (Musk, Bezos, NASA), but will also consider less conventional ways humans can get their Mars on. Above all, we will argue for diversity - and cheaper fares - for future Mars expeditions.

Speaker: Jan Millsapps, San Francisco State

Exploding Stars, Dark Energy, and the Runaway Universe

Some of the most energetic and fascinating objects in the Universe are exploding stars called supernova. These colossal outbursts result from the deaths of stars and can outshine the entire galaxy in which they're found.

Observations of distant supernova provided the first evidence that the expansion of the Universe is speeding up with time. This wholly unexpected phenomenon is likely due to a repulsive "dark energy" and has become one of the biggest unsolved mysteries in modern science.
