Last week on Crash Course Astronomy, we took a tour of our Milky Way: a gorgeous, splashy spiral galaxy.

But there are other kinds of galaxies. They come in many shapes and sizes, all of which are beautiful, fascinating, gorgeous, and—honestly—really, really cool.

Let’s take a look, shall we?

Mind you, this is only Part 1! In Part 2 I’ll talk about even more, different kinds of galaxies, where they live, and even … well, I don’t want to spoil it. But these episodes keep on getting bigger, and we still have a long way to go.
