Shows: Seasonal Stargazing and Comets and Discovery at the Planetarium
Our beautiful planetarium is back! The new projector is ready, and we are showing our program, "Comets and Discovery" you do not want to miss, relevant to a new comet in our skies, Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF)!  If clear following the show, we will have Sherzer Observatory across the courtyard open for possible views of this solar system interloper.

Physics Professor wins NASA grant

Professor Dave Pawlowski was recently awarded a 3-year grant from NASA's Mars Data Analysis Program to investigate the effects of solar flares and dust storms on the Martian upper atmosphere.  The $340,000 award will provide insight into the time dependent behavior of the Mars ionosphere and thermosphere and aid future missions in mitigating the adverse effects of Martian space weather.

Physics and Astronomy is looking for graduate students!

If you are interested in pursing a master's degree in physics, consider applying to EMU.  Contact the Department for more information about possible Graduate Assistantships!
