Bay Area Science Events

Join them for a fascinating journey through the early universe using the latest computer animations of early star formation, supernova explosions and the build-up of the first galaxies. Dr. Abel’s work has shown that the first luminous objects in the universe were very massive stars shining one million times as brightly as our Sun. They died quickly and seeded the cosmos with the chemical elements necessary for life.

One star at a time, galaxies started to assemble just one hundred million years after the Big Bang, and they are still growing now. Computer simulations of these events use the physics of dark matter, of ordinary atoms and molecules, and of expanding space to deliver remarkable insights into the early history of the cosmos.
