Astronomy Cast Ep. 679: High(per) Velocity Stars

by Fraser Cain & Dr. Pamela Gay

Streamed live on Apr 24, 2023.

Most stars in the Milky Way are trapped in here with us, doomed to orbit around and around and around. But a few have found a way out, an escape into the freedom of intergalactic space. How do stars reach escape velocity, never to return?
