Hot Topics: The Milky Way
Our solar system lies in a vast neighborhood of stars called the Milky Way. Although the Milky Way in the night sky has been known for millennia, its nature and our place it in and in the universe have only come into focus in the past century. In this talk we will look at our evolving picture of the Milky Way, our place in it, and where we fit in among the rest of the known universe.
