- What does blazar mean?
- Blazar is an active, (quasi-stellar radio source) intense base associated with an estimated super-mass black hole at the center of a giant elliptical galaxy. Blazars are among the most energetic phenomena in the world and are an important issue for intercultural astronomy.
- Blazars are members of a larger group of active galaxies hosted by active core galaxies. The Blazar word was invented by the astronomer Edward Spiegel in 1978, combining the letters of the BL Lac objects and the strongly polarized strongly polarized quasar terms.
- Generally accepted opinion While BL Lac objects are actually weak radio galaxies, OVV quasars are powerful radio galaxies. In both cases, the main galaxies are giant elliptical galaxies.
- Blazars, like all AGN, are thought to be ultimately powered by material falling onto a supermassive black hole at the center of the host galaxy. Blazars are thought to be active galactic nuclei, with relativistic jets oriented close to the line of sight with the observer.
