2. The Milky Way

Discover our home galaxy, the Milky Way, and its structure. Explore the spiral arms, central bulge, and supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy.

3. Galaxy Classification

Dive into the Hubble classification system used to categorize galaxies based on their shape and structure. Learn about the distinct features and characteristics of each classification.

4. Galaxies and Cosmology

Explore the role of galaxies in the study of cosmology and the understanding of the universe's origin and evolution. Learn how the distribution and clustering of galaxies provide insights into the structure of the cosmos.

5. Formation and Evolution

Gain knowledge about the formation and evolution of galaxies. Explore the various theories and models, such as hierarchical merging and galaxy collisions, that explain their development over time.

6. Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN)

Learn about the powerful and energetic phenomena occurring at the centers of some galaxies. Discover different types of AGN, including quasars and blazars, and their role in shaping galactic dynamics.

7. Galaxy Morphology

Explore the fascinating shapes and structures observed in galaxies. Study the spiral arms, galactic disks, bars, and other features that contribute to their unique appearances.

8. Interactions and Galaxy Interactions

Understand the interactions between galaxies and their consequences. Explore galactic collisions, mergers, and tidal interactions, and how they influence the formation of stars and the redistribution of gas and dust.

9. Extragalactic Astronomy

Expand your knowledge beyond the Milky Way and explore galaxies beyond our own. Learn about observations, techniques, and discoveries made through studying distant galaxies.
