Journey through the Extreme Universe: Extragalactic Universe

22/09/2021 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM UTC

In the 5th webinar of the series, Jonathan Biteau (former convener of the CTA Extragalactic Working Group) will provide an overview of the most extreme sources that the CTA Observatory can detect outside of the Milky Way, out to a time when the Universe was still in its teenage years. He will discuss how CTA observations can probe jets of ultrarelativistic particles moving away from super-massive black holes and explain why the gamma rays from these jets could shed new light on the very content and fabric of the Universe.
