An Oxford University Astrophysics professor, Roger Davies, will be sharing the secrets of the stars at Wallingford's Corn Exchange on Monday 8th April.

Astrophysicists have discovered that massive galaxies host supermassive black holes. Professor Davies will discuss the relationship between black holes and their galaxies. He will look in particular at the impact of the mass of the black hole compared with its gravitational influence. There are exciting paradoxes.

Professor Davies’ research aims to advance our understanding of cosmology and the evolution of galaxies by developing new techniques and instruments. His contributions span cosmology and so his visit to Science Exchange Wallingford will give you an opportunity to question the stars!

The free event, supported by local company Triaster, is organised by Science Exchange Wallingford, which is part of the national Café Scientifique network. It starts at 8 pm, but you are advised to arrive early to be sure of a seat as places are limited. This also gives you the chance to support the Corn Exchange by buying a drink.
