St. Mary's University welcomes Dermott J. Mullan, Ph.D., who will discuss the topic of "Moses and the Big Bang."
Mullan is Professor of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Delaware. His research interests center on the effects of magnetic fields in the Sun and stars. These fields give rise to a variety of energetic phenomena, some of which can have disruptive effects on Earth. The research, sponsored by NASA, has led to more than 200 publications in refereed journals, and to a textbook, Physics of the Sun: A First Course.
