Tucson Marriott University Park
Dr. Charles Lada
Description: Dr. Lada will discuss the development of our understanding of star formation as a continuing process in the Milky Way. He will review the fundamental boundary and initial conditions relevant to the construction of a predictive theory of star formation that will be able to address such fundamental questions as how stars get their masses, and what determines the rate of star formation in molecular clouds.
