When you live in Wisconsin, you learn to make the most of winter. Dr. Chris Stockdale, associate professor of physics, hits the hills to explain the science of sledding — and endures a barrage of snowballs along the way.



Stockdale is part of an international collaboration that monitors X-ray, ultraviolet, infrared and radio emissions from extragalactic supernovae, and he leads the U.S. radio group. His work is funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and he frequently publishes in Astrophysical Journal, Astronomy & Astrophysics, and the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
