Amina Helmi (born 1970) produced a pioneering dissertation that places the origin and evolution of our galaxy ? the Milky Way ? in an entirely new light: it probably formed gradually as smaller star systems merged.

Helmi’s work involves tracing those separate star systems (“fossils”), meaning that she is in fact engaged in a kind of “astro-archaeology”. Helmi – who is originally from Argentina – is a member of numerous international scientific networks.
