In the early phases of the universe, enormous amounts of gas have been pulled together under the gravitational influence of dark matter. Thus, the first generation of stars and galaxies came into being. Today, galaxies still contain large amounts of diffuse gas and convert it into new stars constantly. Hence, the gaseous matter in the universe plays a key role in the development of galaxies. The talk by Philipp Richter from the Institute of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Potsdam will elaborate on the most important features of this fascinating medium and give insights into the recent research in this field.  

The event is a part of the „Clusterwoche Deutschland“, which aims at presenting the diversity and strength of German Clusters.

We look forward to your visit!
