Los Alamos, New Mexico, October 27, 2009—Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist Sanjay Reddy talks about the nature of neutron stars in a Frontiers in Science lecture at 7 p.m., November 3, in the Duane Smith Auditorium at Los Alamos High School.

Reddy will give the same lecture November 5, 10, and 16 in Albuquerque, Española, and Santa Fe, respectively. All the talks begin at 7 p.m. and are free of charge.

In the talk, “Inside Neutron Stars: Where a Teaspoonful Weighs a Billion Tons,” Reddy will explain neutron stars, the physics of matter at extreme density, and the role they play in some of the most spectacular astrophysical phenomena in the universe.

Reddy, of the Laboratory’s Nuclear and Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology Group, plans to repeat the lecture on the following dates:

  • November 5, New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, 1801 Mountain Road, N.W., Albuquerque
  • November 10, Nick L. Salazar Center for the Arts, Northern New Mexico College, 921 Paseo de Oñate, Española
  • November 16, James A. Little Theater, New Mexico School for the Deaf, 1060 Cerrillos Road, Santa Fe.

The Frontiers in Science lecture series is sponsored by the Fellows of Los Alamos National Laboratory. Frontiers in Science lectures are intended to increase local public awareness of the diversity of science and engineering research at the Laboratory.
