TPL Thought Exchange: The Life Cycle of Stars

Micheal Reid_1495_200x200px

Using the latest images from space telescopes such as Hubble, Spitzer, and Herschel, Dr. Michael Reid tells the story of how stars are born, live and die–a cycle that has been playing out for nearly 14 billion years. Stars form shrouded in clouds of gas and dust so thick that it’s hard for us here on Earth to see what’s happening. When they die, they die so quickly it can be hard to catch them in the act.

This Toronto Public Library Thought Exchange Talk is part of the Astronomy Adventures Around the World series.
