SIGNALS: Unveiling Nearby Galaxies

Location: Student Services Center, Room W-201

Talk by Dr. R. Pierre Martin of the UH Hilo Physics & Astronomy Department.

Vast ensembles of stars, gas, planets and galaxies are the building blocks of the universe. In spiral galaxies, recently-formed stars contribute to their evolution across cosmic times. Despite significant progress made in our understanding on the processes at play in the evolution of these galaxies through star formation, many questions remain unanswered. To tackle them, our large international collaboration has recently undertaken an extensive observing program on nearby galaxies, called SIGNALS, using an innovative instrument at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope on Maunakea. Using new spectacular images and animations, Dr. Martin will present some of the first results obtained with SIGNALS and discuss how our worldwide team is actively working in providing new insights on the general theme of "Where Do We Come From?"

Part of the International Topics Speaker Series. Free and open to the public.
