Physics & Astronomy Colloquium – Fall 2020 – Roberts

September 16, 2020 @ 3:45 pm - 5:00 pm

Speaker: Amy Roberts (University of Colorado Denver) Title: The Super Cryogenic Dark Matter Search Detectors: Pushing Lower Thresholds in Search of an Answer Abstract: A wealth of cosmological measurements suggest that non-luminous "dark matter" makes up approximately 80% of all matter.  So far, the effects of dark matter have only been observed gravitationally.  But direct-detection experiments like the Super Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (SuperCDMS) are designed to be sensitive to a hypothesized - but not yet observed - dark matter…

Physics & Astronomy Colloquium – Fall 2020 – Robock

September 30, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Speaker: Alan Robock (Rutgers University) Title: Climatic and Humanitarian Impacts of Nuclear War Abstract: A nuclear war between any two nations, such as India and Pakistan, with each country using 50 Hiroshima-sized atom bombs as airbursts on urban areas, could inject 5 Tg of soot from the resulting fires into the stratosphere, so much smoke that the resulting climate change would be unprecedented in recorded human history.  Our climate model simulations find that the smoke would absorb sunlight, making it…
