    Space Telescope Science Institute 2019 John N. Bahcall Lecture Series - 13th Annual
    “Lava Worlds to Living Worlds: How a NASA Mission Sparked the Search for Life Beyond the Solar System”

    Location: 3700 San Martin Dr, Baltimore, MD, The John N. Bahcall Auditorium
    Time: 3:00 PM
    Speaker(s): Natalie Batalha, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Ames Research Center & University of California, Santa Cruz
    Note: Reception in Cafe Azafran to follow lecture.

    Description: NASA recently announced the end of an era. After nine years of operation, NASAs Kepler spacecraft will be retired, but not without making an indelible imprint on humankinds understanding of the universe. Perhaps its greatest legacy is the knowledge that planets outnumber stars in the galaxy. With over 2,500 planet discoveries and another 2,000 awaiting con confirmation, Kepler revealed a staggering diversity of worlds, turning sci-fi fantasy into scientific reality. It also changed our collective perspective regarding the feasability of finding evidence of life beyond Earth and catalyzed efforts across the globe to reach that goal. In this illustrated, nontechnical presentation, astrophysicist and planet hunter, Dr. Natalie Batalha, the former project scientist for NASAs Kepler mission, will give an overview of Keplers remarkable scientific legacy. She will highlight some of the key discoveries and share a preview of exciting follow-up missions in progress and on the drawing board. With the retirement of Kepler, we pass the baton and watch in anticipation as a new era of exploration unfolds.

    Princeton University Data Science / COMPASS Seminar
    “Stream Detection Using Photometric Distance Posteriors Deep-Learned from Gaia”

    Location: Peter B. Lewis Science Library, Visualization Lab, Rm. 347
    Time: 4:00 PM
    Speaker(s): Miles Cranmer, Princeton University

    Description: I will present a novel technique to automatically associate stars to stellar streams using photometry and 4D kinematic information from Gaia DR2. We use HDBSCAN for clustering stars into stream candidates using a custom distance metric learned with neighborhood component analysis (NCA) on mock stream data from FIRE simulations, in combination with a distance filter on photometric distances from a data-driven model. Without tuning or prior information about the existence or kinematics of GD-1, the algorithm is able to detect GD-1 in raw Gaia data automatically. In parallel, I will present the methodology used to create a catalog of photometric distance posteriors derived from a data-driven model using Gaia parallaxes as a training set. Dust estimation and dereddening is done iteratively inside the model. Full posterior densities are given rather than point estimates, allowing for MCMC integration over stellar type and dust ambiguities. Finally, I will discuss additional applications for this catalog.

    Every week we discuss data science methods and applications from papers, reviews, software releases, etc. We also have demos for useful/fancy methods by locals and visitors through the COMPASS program. The setting is informal. Material should be presented directly from the source or on the white board, demos should be hands-on. We collect links to documents, source code, tutorials, etc. for later perusal in this github repo. If you would like to present at the data science seminar, please contact the organizers Peter Melchior (melchior[at]astro.princeton.edu), Adrian Price-Whelan (adrn[at]astro.princeton.edu), Christina Kreisch (ckreisch[at]astro.princeton.edu), Lachlan Lancaster (lachlanl[at]princeton.edu).

    “Dark Matter Strikes Back at the Galactic Center”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room 303
    Time: 4:00 PM
    Speaker(s): Rebecca Leane, MIT

    Description: The Galactic Center GeV Excess (GCE) is firmly detected. While there is statistical evidence suggesting the excess originates largely from point sources, its interpretation as a signal of annihilating dark matter has not been conclusively ruled out. In this talk, I will examine the impact of unmodelled source populations on identifying the true origin of the GCE, using non-Poissonian template fitting (NPTF) methods. In a simulated proof-of-principle scenario, I will show that unmodelled sources in the Fermi Bubbles leads to a dark matter signal being misattributed to point sources by the NPTF. Strikingly, we find there is behavior consistent with such an effect in the real Fermi data, as a fake injected dark matter signal is completely misattributed to point sources. This demonstrates that dark matter may be substantially contributing to the GCE, as its presence can be incorrectly discarded due to a yet discovered unmodelled point source population biasing results.cted.

    Institute for Advanced Study Informal Astrophysics Seminar
    “Investigating the Star-Planet Connection with Precision Spectroscopy”

    Location: Bloomberg Hall, Astrophysics Library
    Time: 11:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Megan Bedell, Center for Computational Astrophysics, Flatiron Institute

    Description: More than two decades after the discovery of the first exoplanet with radial velocity (RV) measurements, vast quantities of data exist from dedicated planet-hunting spectrographs. These spectra play an important role not only in the discovery and characterization of planets but also as a rich source of information about bright stars in the solar neighborhood. I will summarize recent efforts to gain insight into the planet formation process via extremely precise (0.01 dex) abundance measurements of solar twin stars with and without planets. I will also present a recently published method, wobble (https://arxiv.org/abs/1901.00503), for data-driven analysis of time-series spectra and discuss the utility of such approaches for future work on radial velocities and stellar spectral variability.

    “The Milky Way as a Benchmark: Using surveys of our Galaxy to inform fundamental astrophysics”

    Location: TBA
    Time: 11:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Adrian Price-Whelan, Princeton University

    Description: The Milky Way is currently the only galaxy in which we can study the detailed kinematic and chemical properties of large numbers of stars. It therefore provides a unique laboratory to test predictions made by astrophysical models of dark matter and galaxy assembly. In this talk, I will focus on how the recent confluence of all-sky photometric, astrometric, and spectroscopic surveys of Milky Way stars has enabled new dynamical constraints on the nature of dark matter. However, these surveys have also presented challenges to many of the simplifying assumptions that have enabled these inferences, for example by revealing the imprints of time-dependence and disequilibrium in the kinematics of stars throughout the Galaxy. I will discuss ways in which we can generalize our dynamical models and improve our statistical inferences to make and test precise astrophysical predictions about dark matter using stellar streams around the Milky Way.

    Princeton University Thunch Talk
    “Iron and Alpha Elemental Abundances in the Stellar Halo of M31”

    Location: Peyton Hall, Room 033 (basement)
    Time: 12:15 PM
    Speaker(s): Ivanna Escala, California Institute of Technology

    Description: Stellar halos provide a record of the earliest stages of a galaxy's formation as well as the mass growth of later epochs. Measurements of [Fe/H] and [?/Fe] can probe the minor merging history of a galaxy, providing a direct way to test the hierarchical assembly paradigm. While measurements of [?/Fe] have been made in the stellar halo of the Milky Way, little is known about the detailed chemical abundances of the stellar halo of M31. To make progress with existing telescopes, I have applied spectral synthesis to low-resolution DEIMOS spectroscopy across a wide spectral range (from blue to NIR wavelengths) in order to measure [Fe/H] and [?/Fe] in M31 red giant branch (RGB) stars. For the same exposure time and weather conditions, low-resolution spectroscopy results in higher signal-to-noise per spectral resolution element. I will present an overview of the method, which I have applied to 135 RGB stars in 4 Milky Way globular clusters as a testbed. I will also present results for 14 M31 RGB stars in a metal-poor and alpha-enhanced smooth stellar halo field in M31. Its composition suggests that the field is composed of disrupted dwarf galaxies accreted early in the formation history of M31. Lastly, I will show preliminary results for three additional fields in the inner halo, Giant Southern Stream, and outer disk of M31.

    Rutgers University Astrophysics Seminar
    “The Journey or the Destination: Isolating the Origin of the Physics Driving Gas Conditions in Galaxy Nuclei”

    Location: Serin Hall, Room 401
    Time: 1:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Elisabeth Mills, Brandeis University
    Note: Refreshments to follow in room 332W.

    Description: Centers of galaxies are some of the most extreme objects in our universe: hosting starbursts and active supermassive black holes that can launch jets and winds far outside the compact galaxy nucleus. While there are relics of an active past in the center of our own Milky Way, at present it does not exhibit any of this activity. However, the central 300 parsecs of our Galaxy does contain a sizable reservoir of molecular gas that is the fuel for future star formation and black hole accretion. Constraining the physical conditions of this gas is critical for understanding how this reservoir will evolve to influence future activity in the Milky Ways nucleus. Determining the origin of these conditions is also key to determining whether the same physics that govern gas conditions in this region can help us interpret more distant and active galaxy nuclei. I will present the results of my recent work following the changes in physical properties of this gas as it approaches the black hole; increasing in temperature, density, and turbulence, while largely resisting the onset of star formation. This work provides evidence that the extreme gas conditions in this region are driven largely by infall processes: the journey it takes to reach the central parsecs, rather than the energetic phenomena (supernovae, cosmic rays, massive star winds, UV radiation, and occasional X-ray flaring) encountered at its destination. However, as our Galactic center is relatively inactive, the next challenge is determining the extent to which the understanding gained from a detailed study of this region can be applied to more active systems. I will end by discussing work underway to double my sample size of galaxy nuclei by making parsec-scale observations of the ionized and molecular gas in the center of NGC 253, a nearby galaxy with an order of magnitude more star formation. Comparison of these two galaxy centers will isolate the gas conditions that both govern and are influenced by a nuclear starburst, and allow the definition of local templates for understanding the gas physics in these regions.

    “Binary Star Science with Sparse, Noisy, and Missing Data”

    Location: TBA
    Time: 2:00 PM
    Speaker(s): Adrian Price-Whelan, Princeton University

    Description: Many open questions in astrophysics hinge on a better understanding of binary star populations (their occurrence rate, orbital parameter distributions, and how these vary with environment). Yet, most of what we know about binary star statistics comes from just a few hundred stars nearest to the sun. Contemporary astronomical surveys have the potential to expand these samples by orders of magnitude across a range of stellar types and in different galactic environments, but these data are often sparse, noisy, non-uniform, and contain missing dimensions. I will discuss two sets of projects that aim to deliver precise population statistics for binary stars with close and very wide separations, respectively. Each of these present interesting but unique data analysis challenges; I will discuss new statistical techniques we have developed to enable the next generation of binary star science.

    Location: Bloomberg Hall, Astrophysics Library

    Speaker(s): Brant Robertson, University of California, Santa Cruz and Institute for Advanced Study

    Description: The properties of supersonic isothermal turbulence influence a variety of astrophysical phenomena, including the structure and evolution of star-forming clouds. I will present a simple model for the structure of dense regions in turbulence in which the density distribution behind isothermal shocks originates from rough hydrostatic balance between the pressure gradient behind the shock and its deceleration from ram pressure applied by the background fluid. This model, which I verify using hydrodynamical simulations, provides a new conceptual picture for describing the densest regions in isothermal turbulence and has applications for understanding the initial conditions of star formation in molecular clouds.

    “Why I don't believe that Quantum Mechanics is the Whole Truth”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room A10
    Time: 4:00 PM
    Speaker(s): Anthony Leggett, University of Illinois

    Description: Not long after the birth of quantum mechanics nearly a century ago, Erwin Schroedinger pointed out, in his famous "Cat" paper, the difficulty which arises if we assume that the theory gives a complete account of the world up to and including our observations of it. This difficulty, known as the measurement, or better realization, problem, has generated thousands of papers in the literature which claim to have resolved it. In this talk I will first explain why I do not believe that any of these "solutions" is satisfactory, and secondly review the progress which has been made over the last two decades in setting constraints on a possible breakdown of the quantum description as we progress from the microscopic level to that of our everyday experience.

    Location: Princeton University, Peyton Hall, Grand Central
    Time: 11:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Discussion Leader

    Description: Each week, we hold a relatively informal seminar/discussion series in Peyton Hall with an emphasis on extra-galactic and large-scale structure astrophysics. During Galread a leader/visitor presents a recent paper to the discussion group. The PDF of the paper is projected onto a large screen, and a guest explains the paper, section by section, in greater detail than may be explained within the text of the article. To aid with discussion, only the article PDF is presented -- no powerpoint-style slides. Galread discussions are very friendly and interactive. If you would like to present at Galread, please contact Andy Goulding (goulding[at]astro.princeton.edu) or Jenny Greene (jgreene[at]astro.princeton.edu).

    Description: The Monday Planet Lunch will be held weekly. We discuss recent papers from astro-ph and hear from the occasional exoplanet visitor. Graduate students are particularly encouraged to attend. The format will be informal and inclusive, spanning at a minimum exoplanets, the solar system, and astrobiology. Moreover, we plan on discussing multiple topics each time we meet, and not to tether a lunch to one organized presentation each sitting. The purpose is to foster wide-ranging and cross-fertilizing interaction and to keep the local community up to date on developments across the spectrum of associated activities. Joel Hartman is the organizer.

    Location: Bloomberg Hall, Astrophysics Library
    Time: 11:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Dimitri Veras, University of Warwick

    Description: Connecting planetary systems at different stages of stellar evolution helps us understand their formation, evolution and fate, and provides us with exclusive and crucial insights about their dynamics and chemistry. Post-main-sequence stars -- white dwarfs, giant branch stars and pulsars -- all host planetary systems which include a variety of observed objects and phenomena, such as remnant debris discs, distintegrating asteroids, and photospheric metal pollution. Here I provide a review of our current knowledge of these systems. I show how this interdisciplinary field incorporates several facets of stellar and solar system physics and chemistry, and represents a dynamical playground for theorists.

    Description: Each week, we hold a relatively informal seminar/discussion series in Peyton Hall with an emphasis on extra-galactic and large-scale structure astrophysics. During Galread a leader/visitor presents a recent paper to the discussion group. The PDF of the paper is projected onto a large screen, and a guest explains the paper, section by section, in greater detail than may be explained within the text of the article. To aid with discussion, only the article PDF is presented -- no powerpoint-style slides. Galread discussions are very friendly and interactive. If you would like to present at Galread, please contact Andy Goulding (goulding[at]astro.princeton.edu) or Jenny Greene (jgreene[at]astro.princeton.edu).

    “Never a Dull Moment: Searching for Exotic Transients with the Zwicky Transient Facility and the Dark Energy Camera”

    Location: Bloomberg Hall, Astrophysics Library
    Time: 11:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Danny Goldstein, California Institute of Technology

    Description: I will describe ongoing searches for (1) strongly gravitationally lensed supernovae, (2) gravitational wave counterparts (kilonovae), (3) pre-supernova outbursts from core-collapse supernova progenitors, and (4) microlensing by putative Type Ia supernova progenitors using the Zwicky Transient Facility, the Dark Energy Camera, and other state-of-the-art optical and near-infrared imagers. I will focus mainly on the theoretical and scientific motivations for these searches, and in some cases I will present some early results. A common technical requirement of these projects is coadding search images in an automated way to increase sensitivity to faint transients. I will describe the ZTF Coadd Facility, a software tool that has been developed to meet this need.
