Astrophiz 92: Dr Ivo Seitenzahl

Astrophiz 92: Dr Ivo Seitenzahl – Optical Tomography of Type Ia Supernova Remnants

Dr Ivo Seitenzahl portrait on Astrophiz branding background

Introduction

Today’s featured guest is originally from Germany and is now a Future Fellow in the School of Science at the University of New South Wales in Canberra. He has developed an amazing new technique for visualising type Ia Supernova remnants using optical tomography. Ivo introduces us to his new technique using radio telescope array data to analyse the different elements present in the remnants and the effects of shocks and reverse shocks.

Our regular feature “What’s Up Doc” for Astrophotographers and Observers is presented by Dr Ian Musgrave, where he tells us what to look for in the night and morning skies for the next two weeks, and in ‘Ian’s Tangent for this episode, he tells us about cheese and the Moon.
