Ohio University Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy Thomas S. Statler, took the time to answer a submitted question - "What defines a galaxy?" - on Scientific American's Web page. His answer, which appeared in the "Ask the Experts" section, helps shed light on the celestial subject matter. "A century ago astronomers talked about only one galaxy, what they called the 'Stellar System' or the Milky Way," Statler begins. "The term 'galaxy' was used almost synonymously with 'universe,' and when a distinction was drawn, the issue was mainly whether or not the universe had an extent beyond that of the stars."

When Ohio Gov. Bob Taft visited Chillicothe last week, part of his tour included a special stop to the soon-to-be-renovated Majestic Theatre, where he was entertained by Ohio University-Chillicothe theater students with "Ohio and its First University," a depiction of Ohio's early history.

"What we're doing is very important," said Amanda Duyke, an Ohio University-Chillicothe senior and theater student. "It's important for people to know the history of Ohio, and it's nice to have the governor come here and emphasize that."
