    With Tufts University professor Anna Sajina

Description

With their rich variety of shapes, galaxies are among the most visually stunning phenomena in the sky. They once set the stage for star and planet formation, which allowed us to be here to admire them. Yet we still have a poor understanding of the processes governing how galaxies form and evolve.

Join Tufts University professor Anna Sajina as she describes how we observe distant galaxies and reveals new insights we have gained into their evolution from the Big Bang until today.
