Waiting for #pint22: Tales from the land of Copernicus
Did you know that approximately 25% of Oslo people are foreign?
We will travel with you all around the world
with a new series of events!
This time, we will be hosting the representants of the largest international group in Norway: Poles! Three Polish scientists will present their research.
6pm - 8pm
The event is in English
The event is also streamed on Youtube:
Understanding the Sun. Numerical models of our local star
Already our ancestors realized that their lives depended upon the Sun, a powerful source of light and heat for life on Earth.
To understand our nearest star, many scientists around the world turn telescopes and satellites toward it, but to comprehend the fascinating data they recorded, we need the aid of complex mathematical models.
In my short talk, I will present the challenges and the importance of modern solar physics with particular attention to numerical simulations, which prove to be an invaluable tool to unlock the secrets of our host start.
Migration, health and sustainable development
As a multi-dimensional social process, migration affects both sending countries, receiving countries, and migrants themselves. The concept of sustainable migration seeks to balance the interests of all of the actors involved in order to make the impact of migration sustainable. It is particularly important in the era of globalization, with societies interconnected in multiple ways. My talk will focus on the links between three phenomena: migration, health and sustainable development.

Norwegian meteorites – how to find them and why to study
Every year, 10-15 meteorites fall somewhere on the Earth. Some are accompanied by spectacular fireballs (like the one we saw over Oslo in July this year) and collected immediately after the fall. Other come unnoticed and are found by luck only, many years later. Norway is home to 15 meteorites and new ones can still be found. What to do if you think, you have found a meteorite? How to recognize it? Can we not only wait for luck but also actively do a meteorite search? Why scientists care about meteorites? In this talk, I will give answers to these questions by telling about my work on meteorites, particularly on most recent Norwegian ones.
