Topic: The Center of the Milky Way 

Today we saddle up to explore the extreme center of our Milky Way galaxy – a chaotic region containing dense gas, stars, and the biggest bully around these parts: a supermassive black hole.  The normal rules for star formation don’t apply here, and understanding why will help us to understand star formation throughout the rest of the universe. Presented by: Cara Battersby, PhD astrophysicist
