The 100-m Green Bank Telescope (GBT) in West Virginia.
Bringing the search for graviational waves to the F&M campus.
The NANOStars research and education program is part of the NANOGrav Physics Frontiers Center, an effort to detect gravitational waves using pulsar timing. NANOStars allows F&M students to use the premier radio observatories around the world for pulsar projects. NANOStars students search the data collected using a pulsar candidate viewer to identify new radio pulsars. These pulsars are then confirmed and further studied.
The NANOStars students at F&M are:
If you are an F&M student interested in joining the NANOStars program, please contact Froney Crawford (email@example.com) to discuss.
The NANOStars program uses data from the following radio telescopes:
The NANOStars teams from the different NANOGrav institutions meet weekly to discuss science, present progress on research activity, and plan upcoming data analysis tasks.
