Welcome to CWRU Astronomy
CWRU Astronomy is a community of active researchers and educators, with research strengths in the fields of galaxy formation and evolution, stellar chemical abundances, and telescope instrumentation and design.
We offer graduate and undergraduate degree programs, and host a series of public talks for the general public. Learn more about our ongoing research, our faculty, staff, and students, and all the new things happening in CWRU Astronomy.
This spring, while visiting the Department of Astronomy at Columbia University, CWRU astronomy senior Chris Carr had a chance to meet noted astrophysicist and science educator Neil deGrasse Tyson. Chris invited Tyson to appear on Chris’ WRUW radio show “Enter Galactic”.
On April 1 2019, CWRU Astronomy found itself in the middle of magical turmoil, as Harry Potter and his friends battled the forces of Lord Voldemort to save the Hubble Space Telescope.
