“The larger the island of knowledge, the longer the shoreline of wonder.” –Ralph W. Sockman

After millennia looking up at the Milky Way overhead, it’s only recently that we discovered our galaxy had a spiral-like structure, and that the other spirals and ellipticals in the night sky are galaxies much like our own. But how did they come to be? Why do they appear the way they are? And what will come of them in the future?

Find out the answers to all these questions and more on the third episode of Genesis, where we focus on the galaxy and where it comes from!

(And if you missed either of the first two episodes, check them out below.)

    Everytime I read your posts I am reminded of why this is my all-time favourite blog.

    I would love to see you do a review of the recently published book ‘The Singular Universe and the Reality of Time’ by Roberto Unger and Lee Smolin.
