Jets, dust and stars: the messy environment of our nearest radio galaxy. X-ray: NASA/CXC/CfA/R.Kraft et al.; Submillimeter: MPIfR/ESO/APEX/A.Weiss et al.; Optical: ESO/WFI

What's special about our corner of the Universe? How did our galaxy come to be and how might it change in future? In this course we will explore the variety of galaxies, from near to far, 'ordinary' to exotic, and we will investigate how modern space missions and observatories are changing our understanding of their habits and histories.
