Coffee at the Cosmo Focuses on Supermassive Black Holes

Featuring special guest Dr. Jianwei Lyu, joining us virtually
Research Associate at the University of Arizona’s Steward Observatory

Coffee at the Cosmo, Cosmosphere’s free speaker series, returns on Thursday, January 20th from 9:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. CST with Mysteries and Marvels of Supermassive Black Holes.

Guest speaker Dr. Jianwei Lyu is a researcher studying the relationship between supermassive black holes and galaxy formation. He is part of eight different research projects connected to the new James Webb Space Telescope mission.

This month’s Coffee at the Cosmo is an official James Webb Space Telescope Community Event. Dr. Lyu is a NASA-designated subject matter expert. His presentation will cover what we know, what we don’t know, and what we hope the James Webb Space Telescope will reveal about supermassive black holes.

This remote presentation will be broadcast live in the Cosmosphere banquet room. In-person attendees can watch on two large-screen televisions while enjoying complimentary refreshments and coffee.

Remote participants can watch live via Zoom by going to www.cosmomeeting.org.

Coffee at the Cosmo will be offered every other month in 2022 and is free and open to the public.
