Dr. Julianne Dalcanton, Professor, University of Washington Department of Astronomy
Friday, September 15, 2017
2:00-4:00 PM
Pendleton Room Michigan Union Map
“Building the Universe, Piece by Piece”

Prof. Dalcanton has led several teams that have used extraordinary images from the Hubble Space Telescope and complementary data from the ground to unravel how galaxies like ours formed, evolved, and produced new stars. In her lecture, Prof. Dalcanton will illuminate the complex forces that have shaped the Universe we see around us, traveling from as far back in time as modern observations permit to the present. She will highlight the unique role that the Hubble Space Telescope has played in uncovering the rich tapestry of galaxies and stars and talk about what the future of space exploration might hold for future discoveries.
