November 2019 Center Faculty Webinar

On November 4, 2019, Dan Paavola (Theology Faculty) discussed with Center Faculty, the three themes from his recent book “Grace, Faith, Scripture: Portrait of a Lutheran” (2019).

Link to video recording

PowerPoint

About his book: Grace, faith, and Scripture. These three solas, or “alones”,  have long been used to characterize the unique theology of the Lutheran faith. The solas set up a relationship between God and us and between us and our neighbor.

Using stories and situations drawn from common relationships such as friendships and marriage, Daniel Paavola uses the three solas to deepen our understanding of Lutheran doctrine. The solas don’t encompass every single aspect of Lutheranism, but through them, we can get a picture of what it means to be a Lutheran.

Concordia Faculty Seminar: Near-Real-Time Calibration for Early Warning Gravitational-wave Astronomy with Aaron Viets

Thursday October 10, 12:15 – 1:00 pm in the Lakeshore Room
Sponsored by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP)

In August of 2017, the Advanced LIGO detectors observed gravitational waves from a binary neutron star merger for the first time in history. Two seconds after the merger, a short gamma ray burst, one of the most energetic events in the known universe, was detected by the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, confirming the long-believed theory that short gamma-ray bursts result from binary neutron star mergers. This detection also taught us just how fast we have to respond to these events in order to maximize scientific results – within a few seconds! This means that the data is acquired, calibrated, and searched, events are sent to astronomers, and telescopes are pointed, all within seconds of the signal’s arrival. In this talk, I will discuss the methods used to calibrate the data and the challenges of achieving the goal to produce calibrated data in about 1 second.
