Speaker: Robert Gehrz – Professor (Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics)

Topic: Stellar Evolution after life on the Main Sequence: Observational studies of Aging Stars

After exhausting their hydrogen fuel during Main Sequence burning, low and high mass stars evolve in distinctly different paths that lead to planetary nebulae and supernova explosions.  These paths will be briefly reviewed and selected related optical/infrared observations of aging stars by University of Minnesota Astronomer will be described.
