Lecture: 'How Galaxies Were Cooked from the Primordial Soup'
Sandra Faber, interim director of the University of California Observatories, will give a free illustrated, non-technical lecture on how galaxies were formed. Faber, who is also an astronomy professor at U.C. Santa Cruz and a winner of the National Medal of Science, will look at the currently prevailing "Cold Dark Matter" theory of galaxy formation, of which she was a co-creator. The event, planned for 7 p.m. tomorrow, Feb. 6, is in Smithwick Theatre at Foothill College, 12345 El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills. Go to foothill.edu.
