Today’s guest post looks at the work of undergraduate physics student Buduka Ogonor on using astronomical photographic plates to study quasars.
Tracing X-ray variability in quasars.
Today’s undergraduate research post is on very unique quasars — and how to find them!
Galactic winds shed new light on an otherwise invisible mechanism at the heart of massive galaxies.
Could a suspicious pair of active black holes improve the outlook for seeing the gravitational wave background?
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.
