Cosmic Mashups: Gravity, Galaxies and Supermassive Black Holes
Supermassive black holes are found at the centre of most galaxies.
Sagittarius A* is the one at the centre of the Milky Way, and is four million times the mass of the Sun.
Scientists are beginning to uncover how galaxy collisions, and the subsequent merging of galaxies, activates galactic centres to produce these monstrous black holes.
Join Astrophysical & Planetary Sciences Professor, Dr. Julie Comerford, and former graduate student Dr. Becky Nevin, as they share current research into the evolution and development of supermassive black holes.
