Why Do Galaxies Die? How Silicon Valley’s “Spectral Revolution” will Solve a 100 Year Old Mystery - Livestream

Kevin Bundy

Over one hundred years ago, Edwin Hubble noticed two distinct classes of galaxies; youthful Spirals with ongoing star formation, and “red and dead” smooth, faded and barren Ellipticals.

The MaNGA Survey, which is mapping 10,000 nearby galaxies, will help us understand how all types of galaxies formed in the early universe. We are on the verge of a “spectral revolution”, enabled by nanotechnology and photonics that will transform astronomical instruments.
