Understanding Nature’s Death Ray Guns
Dr Jen Gupta
There is a monster lurking in the centre of some galaxies. Fuelled by matter falling onto a supermassive black hole and powerful enough to outshine a galaxy, these ‘blazars’ have been described as nature’s death ray guns. Jen will discuss what we know about these blazars, how we know what we know and some of the questions that are still puzzling astronomers today.
