Star (and planet) Formation - Google Hangout

Wednesday, 11 March, 2015

Star (and planet) Formation is a Google Hangout (one in a series with Dr Pamela L. Gay) that took place on Wednesday, March 11, 18:00 (CET).

Our universe started as a fog of particles, but slight variations in density allowed the formation of stars, galaxies, and the large-scale structures of the universe. In this Hangout we’ll discuss early structure formation and fast forward to today’s stars with planets.
