This past Tuesday I gave the STScI monthly public lecture in Baltimore, MD – thanks to everyone who braved the rain and thunderstorms to attend! The lecture was livestreamed online and is now available to watch on YouTube. This is one of my favorite public lecture topics, so check it out to learn more about enormous red supergiants, core-collapse supernovae (and their impostors), neutron stars, and of course Thorne-Żytkow objects, along with a comparison of Hollywood vs. actual astronomy!

Enjoy, and be sure to watch future public lectures online at STScI’s webcast site!
