Hubblecast 80: The Riddle of the Missing Stars

Hubble observations add to the mystery of globular cluster formation

20 November 2014

New observations of four globular clusters in the Fornax dwarf galaxy have called into question one of the leading theories about how these clusters form.

In this episode we explain the mystery behind these objects and how it is deepened by these new findings.
