Stephen Wolfram is a computer scientist, physicist, and businessman. He is known for his work in computer science, mathematics, and in theoretical physics. In 2012 he was named an inaugural fellow of the American Mathematical Society.
Ever wonder what it would be like to live and work at one of the coldest, most remote places on Earth? James Casey and Martin Wolf can tell you all about it. They are adjusting to life in more moderate conditions after thirteen months operating the biggest and strangest telescope in the world, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole.
See incredible pictures of their exciting and challenging adventure, and learn what it takes to capture the almost invisible neutrino, nicknamed the ghost particle.
Active galactic nuclei (AGN) are powered by the accretion activity of supermassive black holes residing at the centers of galaxies. While observations propose that growth of AGN and galaxies are globally tied, I investigate whether this connection exists in individual galaxies. I also investigate various AGN selection techniques and star formation rate (SFR) estimates using multi-wavelength data from Chandra, Spitzer and rest-frame optical spectra from the Keck telescope.
