Dinner and Discussion - Active Galaxies and Galaxy Evolution

Michael Eracleous, Professor
Department of Astronomy and Physics
Penn State University

"Everything in the universe is related to everything else. In order to understand how the universe works on the largest scales, we have to start by understanding processes that work on microscopic scales. As such, astrophysics is an exercise in all of physics.”

This event is part of Georgia Tech's Science at the Bistro series, which provides opportunities for conversation with a research scientist (with lots of questions) in an informal setting. This time around Penn State University astrophysicist Michael Eracleous will be showing slides of active galaxies and explaining how we learn about them and what role they play in the universe.  He will also be discussing how galaxies evolve.
