Galaxies and clusters of galaxies are the largest objects in the universe and visible at vast distances. In this course, we’ll explore the universe of galaxies, how we observe them, and what they teach us about themselves and the nature and history of the universe.
Aileen O’Donoghue holds physics degrees from New Mexico Tech, where she studied both astronomy and atmospheric physics. She has taught astronomy (and other topics, such as global climate, meteorology, climate history, and climate change) at St. Lawrence University for over 30 years. She is a professional astronomer doing research on galaxies. As she says, “It’s so enriching to know what’s going on when you look at celestial objects!” Aileen is a frequent, and popular, presenter for SOAR. In fall 2016, she was given the “Leon LeBeau SOARing Educator Award.” View presenter’s SOAR classes on her own SLU website: go to www.soarnorthcountry.org then to COURSES, and then to “Galaxies” to find the link.
