Title: The Circumgalactic Medium: What It Is, and Why It Matters

Abstract: The “Circumgalactic Medium” is the vast reservoir of diffuse gas surrounding galaxies that acts as their fuel supply, waste dump, and recycling center. I will talk about how we discovered and came to understand this important but nearly invisible component of galaxies, and consider what we can do in the future to fully map out how gas flows drive galaxy evolution. I will also bring you inside efforts to build the next generation of Great Observatories that will revolutionize our understanding of these Cosmic Origins over the next few decades.
