Many galaxies have a sinister secret: they’re cannibals. The biggest have grown bloated by devouring their neighbors in galactic feeding frenzies that would make Hannibal Lecter proud. Like detectives at the scene of a crime, astronomer Dr. Michael West searches for clues to reveal the violent histories of cannibal galaxies and their victims. But separating the cannibal from the cannibalized isn’t always easy.
