Tuesday, August 9, 2022
UW Space Place, 2300 S. Park St. (lower level of the Atrium)
Stars form in cold, dense clouds of gas and dust in galaxies. But where do these dense clouds come from ?Dan Rybarczyk from UW-Madison Astronomy Dept will present new research that is revealing how dynamical processes like supernova explosions and supersonic cloud motions shape these important structures — rich not just in the ingredients for star formation, but also in some of the molecular building blocks of life.
