Summary:
Grasping the size of our galaxy requires a comprehension of the concept of light years, which this program lays out in clear detail. Through comparison with earthly time frames, we grasp the fact that the light from distant stars is actually elapsed cosmic time. The formation and destruction of stars, the phenomenon of pulsars, and the existence of black holes give us a stunning overview of our galactic neighborhood and its components. And, we learn that galaxies are composed of huge gas and dust clouds, called nebulae, which condense under gravitational pull into rotating billions of stars, and planets.
