Physics Colloquium “Dusty Galaxies Near and Far”
Start Date: 11/1/2012Start Time: 3:30 PM
End Date: 11/1/2012End Time: 4:30 PM

Event Description
The Department of Physics will host “Dusty Galaxies Near and Far” with Dr. Anna Sajina, Assistant Professor at Tufts University, November 1, 2012 at 3:30 p.m. at Disque Hall, room 919 (32nd and Chestnut Streets).
Dr. Sajina will discuss what are dusty galaxies and why they are important to studies of galaxy formation and evolution. She will present recent results based on data from the Spitzer and Herschel Space Telescopes in the infrared as well as the Hubble Space Telescope in the optical showing that dusty galaxies early on in the history of the universe are fundamentally different from their closest analogs today. She will discuss how these findings fit with our changing views on the evolution of galaxies over time.
The lecture is free and open to the Drexel community. For more information, email Dr. Gordon Richards at gtr@physics.drexel.edu.
