Living with a Star : Our Sun and her Interstellar Neighbours


Almost all of the universe’s plasma, the most abundant form of ordinary matter, is found in the giant crucibles of our universe known as the stars. Despite living with a star at her own backyard, we understand surprisingly little about their physics, and many of the questions revolving them still persist as unsolved problems of modern physics. I had the opportunity to study our local interstellar neighborhood and the star-planet interactions for last 7 years in collaboration with multiple leading agencies such as NASA, Lockheed Martin, ISSI (Bern), UC Berkely, LASP, NSO and many others. These opportunities have granted me to gain experiences in multi-disciplinary front as well as insights on how the space science has evolved over last two decades and where we expect to see humanity 50 years from now. In this webinar, I would like to share these experiences with you and hear your questions.
