12am Hawkeye Corn Monument

12am Hawkeyes in Space exhibition

The Old Capitol Museum on the University of Iowa campus is hosting a blockbuster exhibition celebrating the University of Iowa's place in the history and future of space exploration and science. Called "Hawkeyes in Space," the exhibition will run in the museum's Hanson Humanities Gallery from September 8, 2016, until May 2017. Plan your visit.

The Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Iowa has played a substantial role in the development of space science research, ranging from the late James Van Allen's early Rockoon experiments and the discovery of Earth's radiation belts with Explorer 1 through present-day spacecraft such as Voyager, MAVEN, and the Van Allen Probes. This exhibition will highlight the role that the department, and by extension the state of Iowa, has played in these developments.

The exhibition will have three main components:

  • History and Legacy of Space Exploration at the University of Iowa: This portion includes historical artifacts that the department has collected from decades of space science research, such as rocket components, scientific instruments, and photographs, with an emphasis on the contributions of Professor Van Allen and his colleagues.
     
  • The Physics of Space: This section of the exhibition focuses on the basic physical processes that underlie the phenomena that are observed by spacecraft. These processes include: magnetism, formation of the Van Allen Belts, and formation of aurora. Questions that will be answered with interactive displays include: “What is a magnetic field?” “How is a charged particle in space affected by a magnetic field?”, “How are the Aurora formed?” A planeterrella device (showing a model for the plasma radiation around the Earth) has been constructed by University of Iowa Professor Scott Baalrud and will be on display in the gallery.
     
  • Current Space Science Research:  This part of the exhibition features current space and astrophysics research carried out by faculty and staff in the Physics & Astronomy Department. It includes space-based instrument projects, including University of Iowa principal investigator instruments on MAVEN, Van Allen Probes, Juno, and others currently exploring the Solar System, and features audio, video, and data clips from relevant University of Iowa research teams. It also highlights the contributions of UI undergraduate students.

The ELDC's daily discussion circles serve as an open forum to improve language and conversation skills, build relationships, and learn about different cultures.

At the ELDC, we believe that the best part of being a Hawkeye is the great community that we create by investing in and learning from one another. One of the best ways to achieve this investment and learning is through open dialogue and by sharing our experiences with one another. Each day has a new topic or activity that allows us to create this sense of community:

  • Monday: Discuss our weekly topic
  • Tuesday: Games and activities days
  • Wednesday: Discuss current events
  • Thursday: Popular culture/special topic discussion
  • Friday: Open discussion day/special topic discussion

No advanced preparation, registration, or reservation is required - just show up as often as your schedule allows. We look forward to chatting with you and getting to know you better!

Andrew A. Neath, William and Margaret Going Professor of Arts and Sciences in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics in the College of Arts and Sciences at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville, will present “Examples of How a P-Value Interpretation Depends on the Underlying Statistical Philosophy.”

Abstract: Arguments and criticisms against the p-value are numerous, yet the use of the p-value in statistical inference has not slowed appreciably. Ideally, a statistical testing problem would be summarized through a measure of evidence and/or a measure of belief. A p-value does not always provide such an interpretation. However, there are many ways in which a p-value does provide an insightful measure. In this talk, we look at some competing statistical philosophies to arrive at different motivations for the use of a p-value.
