UW Space Place, 2300 S. Park St. (lower level of the Atrium)
Our Universe is filled with billions of galaxies that are all interacting with their surroundings in some way, but how do these interactions actually affect how galaxies change and evolve over time? Can we use suppermassive black holes that are emitting incredibly high energy jets as tools to study the surroundings of these galaxies? Join us to learn more about the matter that exisits outside of galaxies, the effect it has on galaxy evolution, and how supermassive black holes can help.
