Star Stuff by Alex Hill

This lecture was presented at the South Pacific Star Party on 20 April 2012.

Title: Star Stuff

Speaker: Dr Alex Hill

Abstract: Stars, including the Sun, form from gas in the near-vacuum of space between stars. In turn, the largest stars drive motions in this gas through their lives and, ultimatley, deaths as supernova explosions. I will present observations and computer simulations of the dynamic evolution of star-forming gas in our Milky Way Galaxy.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
