Join us at McGrattans on Tuesday, May 14th at 7pm for studying data on galaxies and exometeorology from the James Webb Telescope, and the controversy of the Mpemba effect in the microscopic world!

Weather on Worlds Beyond our Own

Johanna Vos (Assistant Professor, Trinity College Dublin)
Over 5,000 exoplanets have been discovered in the last 30 years, however the majority of these have been discovered using indirect methods. Next-generation telescopes such as the recently launched James Webb Space Telescope and the upcoming 30-m telescopes (e.g. ELT, TMT, GMT) will enable direct exoplanet characterisation. In this talk I will discuss our current and future efforts to investigate the atmospheres of extrasolar worlds.

The Science of the Mpemba Effect

Oisín Culhane (PhD Researcher, Trinity College Dublin)
The Mpemba effect is the paradoxical phenomenon where hot water freezes faster than cold water. I will explore this puzzling effect's history, controversy and recent research in the microscopic world.

Star formation with the James Webb Space Telescope

Jeroen Jaspers (PhD Candidate, Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, Maynooth University)
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has granted us amazing views on the formation of stars, not only in our own galaxy the Milky Way, but also in other nearby galaxies, even of sun-like stars!
