From SciShow Space.
Thanks to X-ray telescopes, scientists in the 1970s found the first real evidence that black holes actually existed, and astronomer Andrew Fabian has used X-ray research to unlock incredible mysteries ever since, including a giant sound wave that can travel through intergalactic gas!
This episode was made in partnership with The Kavli Prize. The Kavli Prize honors scientists for breakthroughs in astrophysics, nanoscience, and neuroscience — transforming our understanding of the very big, the very small, and the very complex.
