Variable Stars | ASSA Astronomy Education

presented by Mary Adam, Astronomy Education Officer

Abstract: As a conclusion to the series on Stellar Evolution, we will take a look at Variable Stars. This will include exploring such objects as Cepheid variables, long period variables like Mira, eclipsing binaries and cataclysmic variables like Eta Carina.

Bio: Mary Adam is an Astronomy educator at the Adelaide Planetarium and a lecturer at the University of South Australia where she teaches a course called Astrophysics: An Introduction. Mary has studied Astronomy, physics and Indigenous astronomy through the University of Adelaide, the University of South Australia and the ANU, and is currently studying planetary atmospheric science through Leeds University in the UK. Her passion and love of Astronomy started at a young age when she discovered that the majority of stars had Arabic names which was the language spoken at home due to her Phoenician heritage.
