Join Astrophysics Curator Mordecai-Mark Mac Low on a journey from the birth of the very first stars to the formation of our own Sun and solar system in the Milky Way galaxy. Explore the golden age of star formation 10 billion years ago, when stars were forming at ten times the rate today. See the planet-forming disks revealed by the high-resolution radio telescope ALMA, and learn where to look for newly forming stars in the night sky.
