Heard on Campus: Chris Palma on the field of astronomy

"As astronomers, we can claim with a perfectly straight face that we are the one group of scientists that will never physically manipulate our subjects." – Chris Palma, outreach fellow in astronomy

Palma hosted the fourth Research Unplugged conversation of the fall 2008 season on Wednesday, Nov. 5. He discussed "Galactic Cannibals: How Massive Galaxies Devour their Neighbors" with an attentive audience of colleagues and community members in the gallery of Penn State's Downtown Theatre. A full podcast of the event is available on iTunesU.
