At The Bishop


On the second Wednesday of each month from 7 to 9 pm, we transform the Bishop Planetarium into a forum for discussions at think + drink (science), a place where you can grab a beer or a glass of wine (or a soft drink) and learn about cutting-edge science in a relaxed, informal setting. Typically our “expert du jour” gives a short presentation on the topic of the month, and then opens the floor for questions and discussion.

October 10: Stellar Science From TESS: Oscillations, Rotation, and Activity
Dr. Derek Buzasi’s research interests include almost anything having to do with stars, including various aspects of stellar (and solar) activity, such as spots, flares, and winds, and he has done both observations and theoretical work. He has published more than 140 papers and has also worked on a variety of major instrument teams. He is currently a member of the core science team supporting asteroseismology with NASA’s TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite). Since 2012, he has been the Whitaker Eminent Scholar at Florida Gulf Coast University.
