The Cosmic Growth of Super-Massive Black Holes

In the heart of every massive galaxy is a super-massive black hole (a million to a billion times the mass of the Sun) that is built up in mass over cosmic time by gas accretion. Usi more...

Deconstructing the Galaxy - in search of giant waves

For the first time, we are able to probe the Milky Way in 6 dimensions - i.e. 3D spatial position, 3D kinematic motion - for millions, even billions of stars.  We can slice the more...
