Student Internet investigation that explores the realm beyond the Milky Way. Part I is a review of galaxy types (Unit IX) and explores areas in the farthest reaches of the observable universe. Part II examines Hubble's law and the expanding universe. Part III explores active galaxies, quasars & blazars.
