Welcome to “blackholewinds.space“!
This page was born from the need to share the riches that my occupation gives me (I will tell about the torments only if they contain a remarkable and immediate didactic side). I am a lucky human, spending my life in one of the most beautiful and oldest occupations on this planet: I am an astronomer.
Good power, when shared, multiplies. Like knowledge.
So: what is our “cosmic address”? I would like to tell you about it in “our Universe“.
And also: how beautiful is our planet, with her unique geometries and diffraction and refraction patterns? I would like to show you something about her in “our planet Earth“.
Curious about my personal history as human as-all-peculiar? You can have a look at “about me“.
I study the winds originating close to supermassive black holes in the center of distant galaxies: but what does all this mean? What are black hole winds, and why are they important? Indeed, first of all: what are black holes? And how do we observe them, if they are black holes? And what do they teach us? I would like to explain it in the section “Research“. The idea of this section is to build a triple exposure level: for everyone (no jargon at all), for Ph.D. students (jargon at minimum), and for astronomers (jargon like hot cakes).
While completing the main page, I will post updates here on the blog. With the existence of “blackholewinds.space” I will not disappear from Facebook or Twitter or Instagram or LinkedIn; nor from the real world! — but this page might serve as a repository for those who might want to read without having to go through the aforementioned social media — and with an extra touch of solid science.
I hope you enjoy it as I do 🙂!
