Physics and Astronomy

Artist's concept illustrates a quasar, or feeding black hole, similar to APM 08279+5255, where astronomers discovered huge amounts of water vapor. Gas and dust likely form a torus around the central black hole, with clouds of charged gas above and below.This guide serves as a starting point for locating information on Physics and Astronomy.
