Quasars are the brightest objects in our Universe and are formed when matter spirals into supermassive black holes. They contain rotating disks as big as our solar system and hotter than the Sun. Professor Patrick Hall discusses these fascinating objects and how they tap the strong gravity of black holes.

Chronicles of a Peculiar Universe is a series of talks presented in collaboration with York University's Faculty of Science.
