Problems in Astronomy & Astrophysics

Lecture in English

Dr. Ioannis Kamaretsos (Munich Public Observatory)

Monday, 18 March 2024, 7 p.m.
Venue: Volkssternwarte München, Rosenheimer Str. 145h

I will be presenting a series of puzzles from the fields of astronomy and astrophysics, ranging from easy to intermediate, ending in a few competitive puzzles. These are not your usual „pub quiz night“ riddles, but appeal to physical intuition. Let’s go through the items together to gain a deeper understanding of our cosmos as well as an insight into how astronomers work. Black holes, the search for extraterrestrial life, planetary motions, gravity, observational phenomena and other topics will be covered. Please don’t forget your little personal notebooks.
The lecture will be followed by a round of telescope observations on the roof.
