Sounds Waves and the Evolution of the Most Massive Galaxies by Professor Andrew Fabian

November 12 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
National Maritime Museum, SE10 9NF
Greenwich, London SE10 9NF United Kingdom

Professor Andrew Fabian

The most massive galaxies lie, surrounded by hot gas, at the centres of clusters of galaxies. The gas is kept hot by energy supplied by some of the innermost gas falling onto supermassive black holes in the nuclei of the galaxies. Professor Andrew Fabian will describe how very low-frequency sound waves may be responsible for transporting the energy through the gas. Professor Andrew Fabian is a Director of Research at the Institute of Astronomy at the University of Cambridge. Past…

Will Gater

Across our human lifetimes, the night sky can often feel like something of a constant. Familiar stars come and go with the seasons, but their arrangement within the vast tableau of the firmament never varies. Nebulae appear today just as they were decades ago and the galaxies that we marvel at through our telescopes seem frozen within a static, obsidian, void. Yet the heavens are anything but still. We live in a whirl of celestial activity alive with the movement…
