Otley Science Festival: Science Lunch

Otley Science Festival: Science Lunch


Enjoy a delicious buffet lunch, then sit back and listen to Professor Clive Tadhunter from the University of Sheffield as he describes the darkness at the heart of our galaxy. The Milky Way, like most large galaxies, has an immense black hole at its centre, many millions of times as massive as the Sun. When galaxies collide and merge together their supermassive black holes eat large amounts of gas and they become the most luminous objects in the universe: quasars. But how do we know that these enigmatic objects exist? What do quasars do to their host galaxies? And how are they linked to the fate of the Milky Way?
This is your chance to find out.

Ticket price includes buffet lunch.
