Tuesday: Galaxy clusters and what they do

 

The universe is immense and mysterious, but there are objects that astronomers can discuss, including X-ray beacons, black holes, galaxy clusters and gas clouds within those clusters that are heated to 1 million degrees.

Dr. Julie Hlavacek-Larrondo, a NASA Einstein Fellow at Stanford University, will give a talk, "Here Be Monsters: Tales of the Hot Universe," at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, at the Kavli Auditorium at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory at 2575 Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park.

Dr. Hlavacek-Larrondo's talk will look into galaxy clusters and their role in creating some of the most powerful X-ray beacons in the universe from the interaction of the gas clouds, the galaxies and monstrous black holes.
