Also known as the Pleiades, Subaru, the
Krittika, and of course Matariki, the Seven
Sisters are perhaps the most celebrated of
all stars. They are the oldest mentioned in
literature and played a significant role in
cultures around the world both past and
present. In this presentation we explore the
ancient meanings and significance of the
Seven Sisters. We also explore the physical
nature and evolution of this magnificent
cluster of stars.
