SAS November 13th Meeting

Stockton Astronomical Society presents

Norbert Werner, PhD:  

"The Beating Hearts of Galaxies"

I will talk about my research on the largest objects in the Universe - giant elliptical galaxies, groups, and clusters of galaxies. I will show observations which reveal how the enormous amounts of energy, released when matter falls into supermassive black holes at the centers of these systems, helps to sculpt the large scale structure of the Universe.   ...Norbert Werner

...Dennis LeClert, Program Director
