Dudley Observatory Skywatch Lecture

September 28, 2010 @ 12:00 am

Anna Frebel"Our cosmic ancestors: The oldest stars in the Universe"

There are stars in our own Milky Way Galaxy that are almost as old as the Universe itself, which is some 14 billion years. I will present some of those stellar fossils, and show what we can learn from studying them. This includes the origin and evolution of the chemical elements from which we humans and the world around us are made off. We really all are made from 'star stuff' and even a little bit of Big Bang material.
