Feature Guest: Christine Wilson
No neighborhood avoids change, and that certainly includes the neighborhood around stars. As the stars that populate galaxies form and develop through their life cycle, how exactly do they change the interstellar medium and drive galaxy evolution? and what larger processes are at play governing the interaction between stars and the galaxies they call home? To help us answer these questions Christine Wilson joins Justin Trottier at The Star Spot.
Current in Space
