Monday, 29. April 2019, The Huntington The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, The DNA of Galaxies

Like people, each of the billions of galaxies in the universe developed its own unique traits over a complicated lifetime. Until recently, astronomers have only been able to study galaxies closest to the Milky Way in detail, leaving much of the universe's history a mystery. Dr. Strom will show how astronomers are now using the world's largest telescopes to determine the chemical DNA of even very distant galaxies, and how this information is answering key questions about how galaxies like our own formed and evolved.
Dr. Allison Strom: Carnegie Fellow, Carnegie Observatories
SEATING IN THE AUDITORIUM WILL BE FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. Starting this season, we will also have access to the adjacent simulcast space to accommodate overflow  audiences.

The season includes four talks by Carnegie astronomers from the Observatories and from our one of sister departments on the East Coast. The Lectures are designed to share the excitement of current astronomical research with science enthusiasts from the general public. Please join us for the 2019 series in this beautiful venue.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Lecture will be preceded by a brief musical performance by students from The Colburn School. Lecture will start promptly at 7:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be available. Directions are available here.
