Congratulations to Dr. Peter Frinchaboy who received NSF funding for his project “The Open Cluster Chemical Abundance and Mapping (OCCAM) Survey.”
TCU physics alum and incoming graduate student Carson Huey-You along with his younger brother, incoming TCU freshman, Cannan, had the privilege of interviewing Bill Nye the Science Guy.
Carson Huey-You is TCU’s youngest graduate and was featured on NBC news.
Congratulations to Afeefah Khazi-Syed for earning American Society for Quality First Place award, Microbiology first place award, and Best of fair honorable mention at the Fort Worth Regional Science Fair. Afeefah is a high school student works with Dr. Anton Naumov through the Research Apprentice Program.
Dr. Kat Barger and collaborators will be observing with the Hubble Space telescope February 8th. They will be looking at a massive cloud that is flowing towards our galaxy that contains a few hundred million times the mass of our Sun in gas. This material was tidally stripped from the nearby Small and Large Magellanic galaxies. Eventually, this gas will fall into the Milky Way where it will be used to make new stars.
