MONTHLY MEETING: Monday, April 15th, 7:30 p.m., Classroom B, 3rd floor, Center on
Church, Downtown Roanoke. In a universe that’s strange enough, they’re almost unimaginable.
With diameters less than twice the width of Roanoke, they’re more massive than our
sun and can spin many hundreds of times a second. They’re neutron stars, and their
pulsar variants, and they’re the area of research that excites our April speaker,
Amruta Jaodand. We’re pleased and gratified to welcome (via Skype) Dr. Jaodand,
who’s just completed her PhD at the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy and
the University of Amsterdam, and is on her way to California for post-doctoral studies.
With experiences at such world-renowned facilities as Arecibo, Green Bank and the
VLA, she’ll be sharing elements of her efforts to understand these powerful objects.
Mark your calendar and join us at our April 15th monthly meeting to enjoy Dr. Jaodand’s
talk, plus our usual retinue of meeting activities!
