This two minute video explains what Astrophysics research is done at Bath.
We study exploding stars, growing galaxies and feeding black holes in an expanding Universe.
The polarisation signature reveals magnetic fields in the universe's most powerful explosions to be much more patchy and tangled than first thought.
An international team of researchers find evidence for much theorised ‘hot cocoon’
Bath astrophysicists are part of an international consortium working on the largest and most sensitive telescope in the world
A billion light years from Earth a supermassive black hole powers a galactic "fountain", drawing in cold molecular gas and spraying it out in an ongoing cycle.
A year after the discovery of gravitational waves, scientists have discovered a cosmic relative to that historic event.
Astronomers captured a cataclysmic stellar explosion, a gamma-ray burst, and studied its “afterglow”, confirming University of Bath scientists' predictions.
