Speakers: Dr Darren Baskill

A beautiful clear night full of stars may look poetically peaceful, but that's the biggest illusion known to man. The Universe is violent almost beyond comprehension. Some stars you can see in the night sky are being consumed by their partners; others are violently collapsing in the biggest explosions known to man; and black holes exist that are surrounded by the distorted remains of countless stars.
In this talk, we look at the beauty and violence that can be seen through the latest generation of X-ray telescopes.
