Find out more about us during the NUS online Student Life Fair (SLF) from 12 to 14 Aug 2020! Here is a brief overview of our scheduled talks, to be held via Zoom (you will need your NUS email). The respective Zoom links will be posted on this blog by 10am on the day of the talk!
Today, we’ll be having another talk on Observational Highlights—do come down and find out what’s new in the spring sky, as winter objects begin to set and summer celestial objects rise—a unique juxtaposition. Session will be held at YIH Training Room 2 @ 7pm. Temperature-taking and contact tracing will be conducted in light of the COVID-19 situation. See you at our talk today!
This week, we’ll be looking at star clusters, and why they are amongst the jewels of our night skies.
Come down, and find out what open and globular clusters are, and what makes Omega Centauri so special. We’ll also be discussing how stars evolve and interact within clusters, and as always, there’s an observation session afterwards! See you tomorrow, at YIH Training Room 2, 7 pm!
Furthermore, in light of the advisory earlier this evening from the Office of the Provost, we will be conducting a meeting tomorrow during session. This will be to decide future conducts of NUSAS sessions.
Do come down and let us know what you think, and how we should manage the situation of COVID-19. The 2-metre rule will be enforced during the meeting as well.
This week, our topic will be Dead Stars: what occupies the graveyards of the night sky? Find out why weird things like black holes, magnetars and novae are much more eerie than any haunted house you might visit, and how they got there in the first place! The session will be conducted at the YIH Training Room 2, at 7 pm this Friday!
Our next session tomorrow (Friday, 7th Feb) will discuss how stars—those tiny points of light in the night sky, and the bright one you see every day—form and evolve over their lifetimes! Come down and find out what a supernova is, what a hypernova is, and what might happen to the Earth, five billion years from now. Some stars end with a bang, and others with a little poof, and we will discover why, tomorrow.
The session will be conducted in the YIH Training Room 2, at 7pm; we hope to see you there!
We hope you enjoyed last week’s talk on eclipses. This week, we will discuss Observational Highlights! The Winter Sky is bright, and chock-full of wondrous celestial objects, from the busy and wonderful Orion constellation and its many nebulae, thence to the Winter Triangle, and an exploration of the night sky at this time of year!Come down and learn what a DSO is, and how we can see them, even in a dense city like Singapore! We look forward to meeting you all this Friday, at S17 Seminar Room 5 (S17-0511), at 7 pm!
