This is part one of a two-part series which will continue on Tuesday, July 27 with a talk by Margaret Geller titled Caught in the Cosmic Web.

Scott J. Kenyon is an astrophysicist at the Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge. He builds numerical simulations to study the way stars and planetary systems form and evolve. Dr. Kenyon is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Physical Society.
