Jocelyn Bell Burnell – “Pulsars, magnetars and fast radio bursts” – Mon 26 Oct 2020, 8pm

Cork Astronomy Club in honoured to welcome Jocelyn Bell Burnell who will give a talk by Zoom on “Pulsars, magnetars and fast radio bursts”. 

An inspiring speaker, it’s a topic she is uniquely qualified to address, since in 1967 as a postgraduate student Jocelyn Bell Burnell discovered the first radio pulsars, amongst the most significant scientific achievements of the 20th century.  She is visiting Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Oxford, and past president of the Institute of Physics and of the Royal Astronomical Society. 

The 26th October is a public holiday, but the committee felt that an exception should be made for an exceptional speaker. 

Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell
