The origin of the stars and gas that make up our Galaxy can be traced back to the Big Bang. The story of the formation and evolution of the Galaxy will be told, beginning with the very small – the formation of the subatomic particles that went on to form atomic nuclei – through to the building of atoms, stars, and the Galaxy. The process continues with the Galaxy’s ongoing evolution.
The speaker teaches in the areas of physics, astronomy and mathematics. He is involved in the discovery and study of some of the oldest stars known in the Universe.
