Royal Observatory Edinburgh
The Galactic Graveyard of the Milky Way
Large Galaxies like the Milky Way sustain themselves devouring smaller dwarf galaxies unfortunate enough to be nearby. This is a hybrid talk.
Large Galaxies like the Milky Way sustain themselves by devouring smaller dwarf galaxies that are unforunate to be nearby. This is a natural part of galaxy evolution and I will discuss the current view of the Milky Way’s halo and how hungry the Galaxy has been.
This talk will be streamed live online via Zoom with a very limited number of pre-booked in person tickets available to attend at the observatory. Please select the whether you want to attend online or in-person when you book.
