Professor Robin Shelton

As part of the Fulbright program, Professor Robin Shelton will conduct research on gas left over from the Big Bang. This work will determine if some of the high velocity clouds that astronomers detect as they fall toward the Milky Way galaxy are condensations of primordial gas left over from the Big Bang. If so, then they are the smallest and nearest tendrils of what astronomers call the cosmic web. As such, they will provide researchers with a new avenue for examining the cosmic web. Professor Shelton will work with Professor Dr. Dieter Breitschwerdt, Director of the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics and Vice Dean of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the Technical University of Berlin in Germany.
