Just as Earth has an atmosphere, and stars (like the Sun) have coronae (coronas), galaxies are embedded in invisible halos of atomic gases. As galaxies evolve, these gaseous halos exhibit many interesting phenomena similar to rains and droughts on Earth. What do these enormous galactic climate systems look like, how are they studied, and how do they behave?

Our speaker, Dr. Yong Zheng, is a Miller Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, Department of Astronomy, with interests that include galaxy formation and evolution. She will answer questions during the video premiere via YouTube Chat,
and in Live Q&A after the presentation.
