The Very First Stars – Nov 4

The Big Bang theory, describing the origin of our universe, is very well established today. We have ample evidence that the universe originated from a hot "singularity," then expanded and cooled over time. Nevertheless, there is still a missing piece of the cosmic puzzle: How did the first stars form?! This presentation will explore the observational challenges we face in answering such a fundamental question.

Our speaker, Deepthi Gorthi, is a 5th-year doctoral student in the UC Berkeley Astronomy Department. She is also a Wonderfest Science Envoy.
