The Evolution of the Modern Milky Way Galaxy

Season 8 Episode 16 | 13m 14s | Video has closed captioning.

When we scan the heavens with giant telescopes we see galactic cannibalism everywhere. We see moments that appear frozen on the human timescale, but are really snapshots of the incredibly violent process of galaxy formation. This is how all galaxies are made. We can piece together a pretty good understanding of this process from countless snapshots.
