Online talk: Life Story of a Galaxy

Dome at night with Moon and stars visible in background

We know that galaxies contain lots and lots of stars. But what came first? Stars or galaxies? Do galaxies ever grow old? In this talk we will discuss a galaxy's lifetime - how they are born, how they grow and make stars, and how they fight, merge, or eat other galaxies.

Recommended age: 12-18 years but everyone is welcome!

The talk was streamed on Facebook Live. You can watch a recording of the talk here on our Facebook page (see the 'Astronomy at Home' video playlist) or by clicking on the video in the media gallery above.
