We’re looking back farther in time than ever before. Here’s what we’re finding.
Even today, the Universe is forming enormous numbers of new stars: from various nebulae throughout our galaxy to mighty starburst galaxies where the entire galaxy is an enormous star-forming region. A decade ago, we were still trying to figure out how, when, and where stars formed throughout the Universe; today, we have that nailed down, but a whole suite of new questions and puzzles have arisen as a result of what we learned.
On this edition of the Starts With A Bang podcast, I’m pleased to welcome Indiana University astronomer Jennifer Sieben to the show, who specializes in the Universe’s star-formation history and also works in astronomy outreach.
She has a YouTube channel with astronomy vlogs: www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLN…hUQ7BFj_S189sOPz1
Serves as her University’s outreach coordinator for astronomy: blogs.iu.edu/sciu/
