Title:  How Stars Form

Abstract:  We live in a remarkable time.  Our telescopes can detect light across nearly the entire electromagnet spectrum and ever more powerful computers make it possible to understand what we see on a physical basis.  For the first time, we can understand the underlying simplicity in how stars form, both here in our Milky Way, and in the distant edge the universe now being probed by JWST.
