Evolved Stars and Binaries @ CfA

The Evolved Stars and Binaries discussion group meets on Tuesdays 4-5pm, roughly every-other week in the Wolbach Library Collaboration space at the CfA.  We discuss late stages of stellar evolution, stellar interactions in binaries, and update each other on progress and open questions.

We welcome new participants! Please contact Morgan MacLeod (morgan.macleod@cfa…) or Tomasz Kaminski (tomasz.kaminski@cfa…) with questions or to be added to our email list.
