A Tour of NGC 2276

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
A Tour of NGC 2276 Astronomers found that this intermediate-mass black hole is producing a jet that appears to be squelching the formation of stars around it. Related Link: http://chandra.si.edu/photo/2015/ngc2276/ More Podcasts: http://chandra.si.edu/resources/podcasts/sd.html

A Tour of NGC 5813

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
A Tour of NGC 5813 (07-06-2015) Galaxy groups are families of galaxies that are bound together by gravity. They are very similar to their larger cousins, galaxy clusters.
