Quasars are the brightest objects in the Universe, supermassive black holes which attract vast whirlpools of gas around them, heated to millions of degrees. These “cosmic lighthouses” illuminate lines of sight spanning billions of light years, revealing the shadows of galaxy haloes beyond where we can see the galaxies themselves. Making cosmic maps of these haloes reveals the largest agglomerations of galaxies in the Universe, billions of light years across. We invite you for a guided tour with Gerry Williger (U. Louisville), and will see you at Monnik Beer Co., 1036 E Burnett Ave, Louisville KY 40217 at 7pm in the Upper Room.
