Alyssa Goodman: An "Insider's" View of the Milky Way, at Canadian Institute for Thoeretical Astrophysics (CITA), Toronto, ON, Thursday, November 21, 2013

Abstract: It has been almost 100 years since the Shapley-Curtis debate. Today, we have fantastic images of the "spiral nebulae" Shapley wanted to leave in our Milky Way, and we are quite sure that they are external galaxies. But, our knowledge of the Milky Way's structure is still quite fuzzy. We are buried deep within the mucky plane of the Milky Way, and hence our view of it is highly obscured.
