There is a monster lurking in the centre of some galaxies. Fuelled by matter falling onto a supermassive black hole and powerful enough to outshine a galaxy, these 'blazars' have been described as nature's death ray guns. In this talk I will discuss what we know about these blazars, how we know what we know and some of the questions that are still puzzling astronomers today.

Event type: Lecture/Talk
Organised by: IOP South Central Branch, in conjunction with the University of Sussex
