Astronomy: The Life Cycle of Stars - From White Dwarfs to Black Holes!
Dr. Neil M. Mulchan, Ph.D.
Join in on an astronomical adventure into the life and death of stars!
Much like people, stars are born, they grow up, live a useful life, and eventually die of old age. Join me on an epic journey detailing the full life cycle of stars, from birth to death. We will study the conditions necessary for a star to be born out of swirling nebulae (clouds of gas), and the roles of gravity and rotation in the star-formation process. We will follow the useful life of the star as nuclear fusion begins at its core, detailing the kinds of energies it produces at each stage...
My name is Neil and I’ve spent a considerable amount of my life in preparation for Science Education. The result is a creative, interactive and personalized approach to teaching the science of everyday phenomena that is part travelogue and part science lesson. I have 20 years of college teaching experience as a Professor. My Master's research was in the field of Condensed Matter Physics, and my Ph.D. research was in the field of Atomic, Molecular & Optical Physics. I am a published scientific author in several international journals and I have traveled extensively to all 8 Continents on Earth, including all 50 States in the United States! The content of my lectures is meant to be a resource for anyone curious about how the Universe works. My travels around the world allow me the unique perspective of merging together my adventures with my passion for teaching many fields of science, including Physics, Astronomy, Earth Science, Oceanography, Meteorology, Geology & Physical Science. Anyone at any age who is curious about how our world works and our place in the Universe will be intrigued by this class. From dog-sledding in the Arctic winters of Sweden to mountaineering uncharted landscapes of Antarctica. From trekking the Amazon Jungles of Ecuador to scaling the Cliffs of Ireland. From spelunking the caves of China to mountain biking the world’s deadliest road on Bolivia’s "Death Road.” From camping under the midnight sun in the far north of Norway and Finland to open-ocean kayaking off the Shetland Islands in the Southern Ocean’s home of killer Orca whales. From days of crossing the Andes Mountains and jungles of Peru towards Macchu Picchu to tenting in the open plains of Africa’s Masai Mara in Kenya and Tanzania’s vast Serengeti. From ice-climbing the glaciers of Alaska to drifting through glow-worm caves in the Southern Alps of New Zealand and diving in Australia's Great Barrier Reef. I bring my experiences from around the world to you in the comfort of your home. Join me on an educational adventure of exploration around the world to see science at work in some of the most remote places on Earth.
