This week we're going to study some of the most ancient objects in the entire Universe; globular clusters. These relics of the early Universe contain hundreds of thousands of stars, held together by their mutual gravity. Since they formed together, they give astronomers a unique way to test various theories of stellar evolution.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/astronomycast/~4/205718467

Quick question. . .what is the actual distance between the stars in the core of a globular?

Thanks!
