Meet an Astronomer | How Stars are Made with Dr. Deidre Hunter
Star formation is a major process by which galaxies evolve with time. On this week’s episode of Meet an Astronomer, we’ll hear about star formation from the perspective of Dr. Deidre Hunter, an extragalactic astronomer at Lowell Observatory. She will discuss how stars form out of clouds of gas, how those clouds might be different in galaxies with little dust and atoms heavier than helium, and what this data implies for the formation of the very first stars.
