Journey to the Center of the Milky Way Galaxy | Dr. Cornelia Lang Lecture at ICPL

The Center of our own Milky Way Galaxy is vastly different than the place where the Sun resides (the "Solar Neighborhood"). The physical conditions are significantly more extreme in the Galactic center and detailed observations of our own nucleus provide us with a window into understanding other galaxies in the universe. In this talk, University of Iowa Professor Cornelia Lang will describe her own multi-wavelength observations and research that works to uncover the astrophysics of this unusual environment.
