From birth to black holes massive stars light up and drive the evolution of galaxies, forge most of the chemical elements on the periodic table during their brief, luminous, and violent lives, and die in supernova explosions that create neutron stars and black holes. Professor John Bally will demonstrate massive star birth, evolution and demise with the latest images from our ground and space-based observatories. Bally is a professor in the Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences Center for Astrophysics and Space Astronomy (CASA) at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
