|Submitter:||Benito Marcote on behalf of the EVN Seminars O.C.|
|Description:|| A new edition of the EVN Online Seminars will take place on Wednesday June 9 at 10:00.|
Pikky Atri (from ASTRON) will be our speaker, and her talk would be focused on how studying black hole X-ray binaries with very high resolution enables us to understand how jets are formed and ejected.
For a summary of the talk:
Accreting X-ray binaries are excellent laboratories to study extreme physics in our universe and provide unique opportunities to understand exotic neutron stars and black holes. It is thought that black hole X-ray binaries are small-scale Active Galactic Nuclei whose radio jets vary on human timescales. High-resolution radio imaging and astrometry are powerful tools that allow us to directly probe into the evolution of these jets. In this talk, I will review the study of compact X-ray binaries and how Very Long Baseline Interferometry is enabling exciting breakthroughs in understanding their birth, evolution and advancing the search for new X-ray binary systems.
