Dr. Andrew Walsh of Curtin University in Australia is the guest speaker for an NRAO/NM Special Colloquium. His talk is titled "Structure and Dynamics at the Centre of the Milky Way." The center of our galaxy contains 80 percent of all dense gas in the galaxy, but holds only about 5 percent of current star formation. This region has analogs in other galaxies that are typically used to estimate extragalactic star formation rates. Walsh will describe this region and present recent models to explain the unusual star formation. 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center (NRAO).
