Astronomy Lecture: Monster "El Gordo" Galaxy Cluster

Wednesday, Aug 20 7:30p
Randall Museum San Francisco, CA

Join Karen Ng for an intriguing talk on Monster "El Gordo" Galaxy Cluster. The "El Gordo" Cluster of several hundred galaxies is one of the largest and oldest known clusters in the earlier universe, at 7 billion light years distant. With the impressive shockwaves observed on the outskirts of the galaxy cluster, El Gordo appears to be a titanic collision between a pair of galaxy clusters. Learn about the latest findings on El Gordo from Ng's team at UC Davis.
