The Hot and Energetic Universe


This show explores the achievements of modern astronomy, the basic principles of electromagnetic radiation, and the natural phenomena related to the High Energy Astrophysics. This science probes hot gas in clusters of galaxies, and around super-massive black holes in the centers of galaxies. High energy radiation provides important information about our own galaxy, neutron stars, supernova remnants and stars like our Sun.
