To understand how galaxies evolve, Dr Rebecca Allen from Swinburne University Centre for Astrophysics & Supercomputing uses Hubble and Keck images to study star-forming galaxies and galaxies that are not forming stars. Rebecca’s passion for both outreach and research makes for a exceptional episode as she paints a clear picture of galactic evolution. to help us understand some of the fundamental elements of our cosmos.
