Visitors are welcome to attend our monthly meetings, which usually feature a guest speaker.
We know that our Universe produces high energy particles whose energies have been measured up to almost a billion times higher than is accessible with the Large Hadron Collider, man's most sophisticated particle accelerator. Unfortunately, we know of no object in nature capable of such particle acceleration. Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs), which were discovered in the 1960s, may be nature's most powerful single objects and so it is natural to wonder if they are the acceleration sources. This talk will examine our understanding of nature's highest energy particles and see how they might be produced by Nature's most powerful objects.
In an effort to expand the resources that are available to our members, we have added a series of online discussion forums in the members section of the web site to help members communicate and share their observations, images, questions and news.
We have not yet added any upcoming events - please check back soon.
