Stars don’t just orbit each other — sometimes they collide! In fact, some of the most exciting events in the universe occur when two stars get close enough to merge. Come collide with visiting KITP astrophysicist Josiah Schwab as he gives us a tour of the many kinds of stellar mergers and the varied ways in which astronomers and astrophysicists observe them. Our motto: Eat, think, and be merry!
