"The Hot and Energetic Universe"

Tickets are $5 at the door. Cash or check only please, no credit at this time. High energy astrophysics plays a key role in understanding the universe. This radiation reveals powerful processes in a hot and violent universe. The full-dome film probes hot gas in clusters of galaxies, which are the most massive objects in the universe. It also probes hot gas accreting around supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. We also discover important information about our own galaxy: neutron stars, supernova remnants and stars like our sun which emit copious amounts of high energy radiation.
