Our universe is more than a serene landscape of stars – it is teeming with activity from some extremely violent events.
In a presentation at the IMAX theatre at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. on September 30, scientists take us inside our violent universe with stunning visuals from NASA satellites.
“Our Violent Universe” put a spotlight on the latest high energy astrophysics research coming out of NASA, highlighting key missions such as Swift, Fermi, Chandra, NuSTAR, and Hubble. NASA scientists who are leaders in this field gave presentations on some of the most exciting events in our universe, including black holes, supernovae, and gamma ray bursts.
