Lions, Archers, and Bears: Dwarf Galaxies in the Local Group

Bill Janesh (Case Western Reserve University)

The Local Group is our cosmic neighborhood — home to the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy, and dozens of smaller objects called dwarf galaxies. Dwarf galaxies are valuable tools for answering questions about how the Universe works. How do stars and galaxies form and change over time? How do galaxies interact with each other? What is a galaxy, anyway? In this talk, we will take a closer look at some of the dwarf galaxies in the Local Group and how they can contribute to our knowledge of the Universe.

This is a free public lecture.
