The Furthest Galaxies in a Dark Universe – Raphael Hviding
Big Stars in Little Galaxies – Peter Senchyna
Please join University of Arizona astronomy graduate students Raphael Hviding and Peter Senchyna as they tell us about the tiniest and most distant galaxies in the Universe! Raphael specializes in the morphologies of distant galaxies, and he is currently developing new observational techniques to be utilized with the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope. Peter studies the stellar populations of dwarf galaxies, primarily with state-of-the-art telescopes such as the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and Multiple Mirror Telescope (MMT).
