CANCELED: Free Astronomy Lecture | Castro

Supernova 1987A in the Large Magellanic Cloud is one of the brightest supernova to be observed. Observations taken with almost every type of telescope, on the ground and in space, have yielded a rich story of the evolution of the explosion debris and its interaction with its circumstellar environment. In this talk, McCray will describe what we are learning from recent observations with the Hubble Space Telescope and the newly commissioned Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA).
