The Space Telescope Science Institute has awarded Assistant Professor Keri Hoadley $24,799 for a project entitled “Jets and disk scattering - Spatially resolved optical and FUV observations of AA Tau.” The award is for a Hubble Space Telescope program to analyze new far-ultraviolet and optical observations of a protostar hosting a planet-forming disk, analogous to the one formed in our own Solar System.
The University of Iowa Department of Physics and Astronomy hosted the Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics Jan. 20-22. The UI conference is sponsored by the American Physical Society (APS) 12 other universities and one laboratory across the United States.
The Laboratory Astrophysics Division (LAD) of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) is presenting its 2023 Early Career Award to Professor James W. R. Schroeder of Wheaton College, who received his PhD in physics from the University of Iowa.
