ROE Astronomy Talk - Colliding Galaxies
Mon 5 December 2016, 19:30 – 20:30 GMT
Massive galaxies in the local Universe typically come in two types: spiral and star-forming, or elliptical with no active star formation. This talk will start with a basic introduction to extragalactic astronomy - just how big is the visible Universe? - before looking at the role that galaxy collisions could play in shaping the galaxy populations we see around us today.
