DescriptionKautsch’s talk will discuss the formation and evolution of the Milky Way system, which was born from a collapsing gas reservoir embedded in a dark matter halo. After its birth, the galaxy evolved and interacted with other galaxies. In the future, the Milky Way will be destroyed during a violent galaxy-galaxy collision, a fate that will begin in about three billion years. However, according to modern theories, this is not the end, and the Milky Way will be reborn and start a new life cycle.
