Astronomy on Tap Leiden: Unraveling the magnetic life of stars

March 25 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM CET

Our next event will take place on Monday 25 March at Golden Tulip Hotel at 20:00 CET!

Join us for a night of astronomy with two fantastic talks from Stefano Bellotti and Victor See, who will tell us about how astronomers study magnetic fields of stars, their evolution over time and how they affect the life of the star.

As always, there will be fun games where you could win cool science prizes!

Stefano Bellotti: Dancing with the stars: let’s see if the magnetic field has rhythm

Stefano is a Postdoc at Leiden University working on the magnetic field of stars and how it influences our knowledge on exoplanets. In his talk, Stefano will present the evolution of the magnetic field of the Sun over time, and how we can hunt for similar phenomena on other stars.

Victor See: The rotational lives of stars like our Sun

Victor is a research fellow at the European Space Agency, and his research focuses on how the rotation, magnetism and winds of stars like our Sun evolve over the billions of years of their lives. In his talk, Victor will discuss how stars generate magnetic fields, the importance of stellar winds and how you can use a star’s rotation to tell how old it is.

Logistical information: We start at 20:00 sharp, so please arrive earlier to enter the bar, save a seat, and grab a drink. We will be uploading a recording of the talks on our YouTube channel after the event.

Join us for an evening of astronomy and fun games where you could win cool science prizes!
