Relativistic jets in the universe workshop

Brahe Professor, Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz (UC Santa Cruz) is coming to DARK with a group of students and post docs, 18-30 August. The overall theme is Relativistic Jets in the Universe.  The program will include projects for PhD students and a lecture series featuring both DARK and visiting researchers.
