About the General Meeting Presentation
How are stars born? Why do they come in different colors? Why are they even born in the first place? In this talk, Dr. Arvidsson will be giving an overview of the conditions and the processes that go into making a star. He will be discussing stellar nurseries, their complex and diverse nature, and how that results in different kinds of stars being born.
Kim Arvidsson is an Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Schreiner University, where he is also the director for the Loftis Observatory. He was previously a postdoctoral researcher at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, IL. He received his Ph.D. in Astrophysics from Iowa State University, and his undergraduate degree in Physics from Lund University in Sweden.
