Some large elliptical galaxies have huge numbers of satellite galaxies comprised of all the other types, forming a large family. During that period, she earned international recognition for her research, particularly on stellar atmospheres and how they can help us understand the evolution, formation, and composition of stars. Abstract: Through group activities and a focus on astronomy as a human endeavor, this book helps you engage and involve students, helping them both understand and enjoy astronomy.
