The Centro de Estudios de Física del Cosmos de Aragón (CEFCA), in collaboration with Fundación Caja Inmaculada de Teruel, has organized an outreach talk with the title "When galaxies collide". The conference, opened to the general public, will be given next Thursday, 16th February, at 19:30 pm in the CAI Auditorium of Teruel by Dr. Carlos López San Juan, CEFCA.

The activity will be set in the Middle Ages, acording with the Festival of Bodas de Isabel de Segura, which will take place next weekend in the city.

In the presentation, Dr. López will show us the origin of extragalactic physics, from the discovery of the first objects beside the Milky Way to our modern view of the large scale structure of the Universe; context that belongs to the large next decade surveys, including those of Javalambre. During our trip through the Universe, he will show us one of the most dramatic phenomena in Galaxy Evolution, the fusion of galaxies, which change radically their shapes and properties.
