Quasars: Supermassive Black Holes and Galaxies Far, Far Away…

Presented by Paola Rodríguez Hidalgo

Quasars are among the most luminous objects in the sky. These extremely energetic regions lie at the center of very massive and far, far away galaxies. Join us to learn how data from the Hubble Space Telescope and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey is helping researchers better understand these incredible objects and what they can teach us about the universe.
