Astronomy on Tap

Why are galaxies so gassy? Astronomers have nearly ruled out a diet heavy in beans and cheese, but the clouds of gas detected around galaxies seem to be an essential part of their lives.  UCSC postdoc Joe Burchett will discuss how astronomers study the gaseous halos of galaxies (hint: not by smell) and how gas flows in and out of galaxies are key to their fortune or fate, including the silent-but-deadly ejections of gas by supermassive black holes.
