The Local Truth: Star-Formation and Feedback in the SOFIA Era -- Celebrating 50 Years of Airborne Astronomy

Date: 
Monday, October 17, 2016 (All day) to Thursday, October 20, 2016 (All day)
Speaker: 
TBD
Location: 
Asilomar Conference Grounds, Pacific Grove, CA
Event Type: 
Conference

A meeting to discuss the current framework of star formation and feedback processes in Galactic molecular clouds and nearby galaxies. High spatial and spectral resolution mid- and far-infrared observations of these local environments, as provided by SOFIA, are critical for a detailed understanding of the key physical processes involved. Such “local truth” is a prerequisite for a reliable interpretation of star formation tracers in distant galaxies.
