StarDate: March/April 2008


In this issue, astronomer John Kormendy discusses how galaxies evolve over time to form massive bulges of stars at their centers, and reveals that bulges that look similar can form in different ways. Freelance writer Robert Wearner tells us about the 17th Century introduction of Western ideas into traditional Chinese astronomy in “The Emperor and the Pole Star.”
