The Friends of Ohio State Astronomy & Astrophysics (FOSAA) are supporters of our public outreach, education, and research missions. FOSAA is a joint initiative of the Department of Astronomy and the Center for Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics (CCAPP).
FOSAA events feature an exclusive show in the spectacular Arne Slettebak Planetarium and several short talks by Ohio State researchers, who describe recent discoveries at the frontiers of their fields, at a level accessible to all.
Events of interest to FOSAA members:
TBA: Baird Lecture - Sera Markoff - Imaging (and Imagining) Black Holes
TBA: Autumn 2020 - Online FOSAA Event Day
Other events open to the public can be found here.
Membership in FOSAA is free. We encourage alumni, current students, and any members of the university and central Ohio communities to join us in exploring the frontiers of the universe.
