Is the evolution of galaxies and their AGN driven by past mergers?
A Seyfert 2 galaxy’s energetic nucleus creates impressive twin outflows, but how are they affecting its star formation?
Today’s paper explores a rather interesting galaxy which seems to have a black hole much more massive than expected, and whether it’s next-door neighbour had anything to do with it…!
Could feedback from active galactic nuclei play an important role in the smallest of galaxies?
This year, the Chandra X-ray Observatory is celebrating its 20-year legacy. Dr. Ryan Hickox of Dartmouth College will explain how the resulting discoveries have shaped our view of the high-energy universe in his plenary talk at #AAS233.
Do we really understand how black holes grow? Using new methods to run high resolution simulations, the authors of this paper investigate the evolution of gas near a supermassive black hole – and their results have serious implications for the models commonly used in cosmological simulations.
