Talk by Dr Gareth Few, Astrophysicist, Research Associate at the E.A. Milne Centre for Astrophysics at the University of Hull.

The world around us is made up of atoms. The galaxy around us is made up of atoms too. The types of atoms we see tells us a great deal about the early stages of the universe and even how galaxies were created. I will take you on a journey from the first few minutes after the Big Bang right up to the present day and explain how we can uncover the secret history of galaxies using the periodic table.

Gareth is an astrophysicist working at the University of Hull where he uses computer simulations to model the formation and evolution of spiral galaxies. He studies the processes which shape galaxies and how different chemical elements are produced in the Universe. In his work he uses some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, without which these sophisticated hydrodynamics models would be impossible.
