- Talk: ‘Cosmic Dawn: The Birth of Galaxies in Our Universe’
The Milky Way is but one of an estimated two trillion galaxies in our observable Universe. Modern astronomical telescopes have revealed a rich ecosystem of galaxies, but our Universe wasn’t always that way. In fact, there was a time when galaxies did not exist. In this talk, Prof. Anson D’Aloisio will describe how astronomers are trying to unravel the mystery of how and when the first galaxies formed.
