The UHH Research Park includes the headquarters for the East Asian Observatory, the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory, Subaru, Gemini, UKIRT, the Smithsonian Submillimeter Array and the Institute for Astronomy, plus the astronomers at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. We are one of the major centres for astronomy in the world and encourage all visitors to the JCMT to take advantage of the proximity of these institutes, and give a seminar while in Hilo. Your talk will be advertised at each of the above institutes.

Upcoming Seminar: January 29th, 2019, 2pm (HST)

Astrophysics research at the Vietnam National Space Centre (VNSC)

Location: EAO Office, Hilo

Tuan-Anh, Vietnam National Space Centre

A brief account of the research being conducted at the Department of Astrophysics of the Vietnam National Space Centre, including stellar physics (protostars and Red Giants on the Asymptotic Giant Branch) and physics of the early Universe (high redshift galaxies) will be given. As an illustrative example, the analysis of radio observations made of the circumstellar envelope of AGB star EP Aqr will be presented. Emphasis will be on introducing the audience to the methods and arguments that characterize this field of research.
