Spotlight Live: Starbursts In The Early Universe


THE MILKY WAY TODAY may fire up one new star every year, but billions of years ago, a subset of galaxies in the relatively young universe were producing new stars at a rate of 1,000 per year. Now, a multi-national team of astronomers has found that these distant, dusty galaxies were churning out stars much earlier than once believed – as early as one billion years after the Big Bang, nearly 13 billion years ago.

On Friday March 29, 12:00-12:30pm PDT, science writer Bruce Lieberman will ask your questions about the starbursts and the early universe with members of the research team: John E. Carlstrom, Dan P. Marrone and Joaquin D. Vieira.
