Our Milky Way galaxy is one of hundreds of billions of galaxies in the Universe. In this talk, I will use the latest cosmological simulations to tell the story of how galaxies have formed over the last ten billion years, and how our own Milky Way galaxy will meet its end a “mere” three billion years from now.
