Description: Another update show, this time on the various generations of stars, let’s get into it. Quick intro. Fraser was running out of time to prepare and he didn’t have a longer intro, so… We’re going to be talking about the sort of early generations of stars, the later generations of stars, what we’ve learned about stars exist, both at the beginning of time and now. And their various metallicities. There. He wrote an intro on the fly.
