  • The Hot and Energetic Universe uses immersive visualizations and real images to present the achievements of the modern astronomy, the most advanced terrestrial and orbital observatories, the basic principles electromagnetic radiation and the natural phenomena related to the High Energy Astrophysics (HEA). HEA reveals processes in a hot and violent universe as it probes the hot gas in clusters of galaxies (the most massive objects in the universe) or the overheated gas accreting onto supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. The high energy radiation provides important information about our own Galaxy, neutron stars and supernova remnants, and stars like our Sun.
