The Weirdest Galaxies in the Universe
The Universe is filled with wonders, great and small. In many cases, these wonders arise out of the order that the laws of physics imprint on the stars and galaxies that populate our universe. But sometimes, this remarkable order is disturbed, producing truly outlandish departures from what astronomers consider to be “normal”. In this talk, Dr. Dalcanton will highlight some of the weirdest galaxies in the universe, many of which are best revealed with the Hubble Space Telescope and its successors.
