Please join the Friends of Ohio State Astronomy & Astrophysics (FOSAA) for our May 13, 2017 event! This FOSAA event will preview our exciting new show on Solar Superstorms in the spectacular Arne Slettebak Planetarium and feature several short talks by Ohio State researchers, who will describe recent discoveries at the frontiers of their fields, at a level accessible to all. Following these presentations, an informal lunch with Ohio State faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and students will give you the chance to ask all of your questions about planets, stars, galaxies, and the universe, and to learn more about astronomy and astrophysics research at Ohio State.
