Olin 114

Abstract: With lifetimes of hundreds of millions of years and luminosities exceeding that of entire, large galaxies, extragalactic radio jets are the most powerful, sustained phenomena in the Universe. These relativistic jets can flow in narrow beams for hundreds of thousands of light years, from the very center of the galaxy to well beyond its boundaries before terminating in large, inflated ‘radio lobes’.

The seminar will take place in Olin 114, beginning at 3:30pm. Refreshments will be served, as well.
