“When Galaxies Collide”

Studying Galactic Interactions is like sifting through the forensic evidence at a crime scene. Astronomers wade through the debris of a violent encounter, collecting clues so that they can reconstruct the celestial crime to determine when it happened. The presentation focuses on the train wrecks resulting from galaxy collisions and the implications for us in the Milky Way.

You are invited to participate in an inspiring presentation by
