Guest Video: Blazars


It was the very timely toilet paper example that made me choose this video to illustrate a news story about the incredibly fine image that astronomers got of a black hole/blazar that is so far away, the light we see began its journey before our Solar System appeared.

What’s a blazar?

Glad you asked!
