Black Holes, Exploding Stars, and Clusters of Galaxies
October 10, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Launched in 1999, Chandra is one of NASA’s four “Great Observatories”, a series of satellites designed to study the sky over a broad range in wavelengths, from infrared to gamma rays. 20 years later, Chandra is still providing the sharpest look ever at the X-ray universe. Chandra’s unprecedented observing capabilities have allowed scientific breakthroughs and important contributions on everything from supermassive black holes, to exploding stars, to the environments of alien worlds, and to the largest bound objects in the universe, clusters of galaxies. Join Dr. Scott Randall as he shares the key discoveries of the Chandra X-Ray observatoary and plans for future telesopes.
