The story of galaxy life cycles is becoming clear. Professor and Astronomer Emerita Sandra Faber will take us through the earliest moments of galaxy birth during inflation, the inception of star formation, the gradual emergence of shape and structure, and finally death at the hands of black holes. Explaining the origin of galaxies is emerging as one of the great triumphs of modern physics.

Dr. Sandra Faber is a Professor Emerita at the University of California Santa Cruz and an Astronomer Emerita at the University of California Observatories.
