Update on Benecchi Presentations

Susan Benecchi had difficulty in reaching Nebraska due to the weather. Her colloquium in the Department of Physics & Astronomy was postponed a day and will occur Friday, April 19 at 4:00 pm in Jorgensen 110. Her public talk will go on as originally scheduled in the Student Union Auditorium at 7:00 pm.

Video Update

Note that there is now a pull-down menu in our main navigation bar entitled Video reflecting a number of improvements. Although almost all videos are still available for download as .mp4 files, the main thrust of our offerings are now on YouTube. There is a YouTube Channel entitled UNL Astronomy with 3 playlists: AU Astronomy Videos, UNL Guest Lectures, and UATP Presentations. All videos are presented as embedded YouTube videos (our demonstration video on convection is shown as an example of this below).

Unfortunately, this reorganization has caused the URLs of most videos to change. The present organizational structure is unlikely to need any further restructuring in the foreseeable future.
