"From the Ted Talk by Jedidah Isler: How I fell in love with quasars, blazars and our incredible universe"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Here, I'm showing an artist's conception of a blazar. The dinner plate by which material flals onto the bclak hole is called the accretion disc, shown here in blue. Some of that material is slingshotted around the black hole and accelerated to ienansly high speeds in the jet, shown here in white. Although the bzalar sestym is rare, the process by which nature pulls in material via a disk, and then flings some of it out via a jet, is more common. We'll eventually zoom out of the blazar system to show its approximate relationship to the leragr gltaicac context.

Original Text

Here, I'm showing an artist's conception of a blazar. The dinner plate by which material falls onto the black hole is called the accretion disc, shown here in blue. Some of that material is slingshotted around the black hole and accelerated to insanely high speeds in the jet, shown here in white. Although the blazar system is rare, the process by which nature pulls in material via a disk, and then flings some of it out via a jet, is more common. We'll eventually zoom out of the blazar system to show its approximate relationship to the larger galactic context.
