Dr. David A. Boboltz joins us on the Space.com forums for an AMA this week! This is the community's latest chance to ask an astrophysics expert all of their most burning questions about the cosmos.
Speaking of burning, if you're curious about the sun, Boboltz is your man. As a Program Director at the National Science Foundation, his primary area of responsibility is the management of the research facilities related to the study of the sun. He is taking your questions this week starting today, Monday, Aug. 23.

Perhaps you're more into stars that are slightly bigger? Perhaps several thousand times larger? Boboltz happens to focus on the study of circumstellar masers in the atmosphere of dying stars, such as supergiants or red giants.
He's currently also responsible for managing the National Solar Observatory as well as the NSF's Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope. Prior to joining the NSF, Boboltz spent 15 years in the United States Naval Observatory as a radio astronomer.
Boboltz will be on the forums taking questions (opens in new tab) from Monday, Aug. 23, to Friday, Aug. 27. So, hurry and join the Space.com forums for your chance to chat with Boboltz this week!
