Dr. Jen covers all the different types of galaxies! Find out what makes a galaxy, how they form, how they die and how we know what our galaxy looks like when we can’t leave it to look back on it.
Created by French astronomer Charles Messier in the 18th Century to help him find more comets, this catalogue is the most helpful list of the brightest and easiest to find galaxies, star clusters, nebulae and even starts with an SNR, a supernova remnant.
