The goal of FUTURE is to support the ambitions of aspiring young women in physics, who will go on to become part of a diverse generation of scientific leaders. FUTURE 2022 will be held on the Caltech campus on Monday and Tuesday, September 12-13, 2022. This year’s conference will provide an in-depth look into life as a Physics graduate student through a series of presentations, discussion panels, mini-workshops and informal socials with Caltech faculty and students. Topics will include choosing a research direction, building community, challenges facing women*, the application process and more. There will also be an opportunity for questions and additional discussion in each session.

In this video, Philip Appleton, a staff scientist at Caltech's IPAC astronomy center, walks us through the new image of the quintet. Four of the five galaxies are gravitationally bound and make up a compact galaxy group located hundreds of millions of light-years away in the Pegasus constellation. At least three galaxies in this group are actively colliding with each other, producing shock waves that trigger new star formation.

Quantum gravity refers to a set of theories attempting to unify the microscopic world of quantum physics with the macroscopic world of gravity and space itself. Zurek, a theorist, and Adhikari, an experimentalist, have teamed up with others to design a new tabletop-size experiment with the potential to detect signatures of quantum gravity.
