Cosmic Mashups: Gravity, Galaxies, and Supermassive Blackholes

Supermassive black holes are found at the centers of most large galaxies, especially giant spiral galaxies.

Sagittarius A* is the supermassive black hole (SMBH) at the center of our own galaxy, the Milky Way, and is 4.6 million times the mass of the Sun.

Scientists are beginning to uncover how galaxy collisions and mergers activate the supermassive black holes at the centers of the merging galaxies, and even how two supermassive black holes might coalesce into a truly monstrous SMBH in the new merged galaxy!

 

Join the University of Colorado at Boulder's Astrophysical & Planetary Sciences Professor, Dr. Julie Comerford, and her former graduate student Dr. Becky Nevin, as they share current research into the evolution and development of supermassive black holes. A Florida premiere of this 2023 release.
