RASC Edmonton Regular Meeting: April 13, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 situation, this meeting was held via Zoom.

Featured Speaker: Erik Rosolowsky – The PHANGS view of Nearby Galaxies

This talk will present new observations from the Physics at High Angular Resolution in Nearby GalaxieS (PHANGS) survey, a coordinated effort to study nearby galaxies with some of the world’s best telescopes.  New data from the Atacama Large Millimetere/submillimeter Array (ALMA), the Very Large Telescope (VLT), and the Hubble Space Telescope are being explored together to create a new view the small-scale physics of galaxies.  I will discuss how each of these telescopes contributes insight to the questions of how galaxies evolve over cosmic time through the process of star formation and stellar feedback.

Also featured: The 100th issue of AstroImaging Corner.
