Paul Fellows – Quark Stars and Strange Matter
19th Feb 2024 at 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
The usual story told of the end stage of giant stars is that they either finish up as a neutron star or collapse completely to a black hole. However, in this talk Paul looks at the possibility for other extremely exotic forms of matter which may add to the picture – and how the latest observations seem to back up these ideas.
Paul chairs the Cambridge Astronomical Association. He presents the open evenings at the University of Cambridge and is frequently invited as guest speaker by Cunard line on board the Queen Mary 2 and other ships.
Graduating from the University of Cambridge Master’s degrees in Natural Sciences a post-graduate degree in Computer Science, he is an elected Fellow of both the Royal Astronomical Society and the Institute of Engineering and Technology. Twice a winner of the Queen’s award for Technology he was recently presented a lifetime innovation award by Emmanuel College Cambridge.
His talks are aimed to appeal to people of all levels from the complete beginner who wants to know where to start, yet hopefully adding something even for the more knowledgeable
