A Steward Postdoc Tells Cosmic Stories for Kids

This fall, Dr. Jaclyn Champagne, our JASPER postdoc researcher at Steward Observatory, wrote a compelling piece for The Conversation about the environments where colossal black holes form (Powerful black holes might grow up in bustling galactic neighborhoods). The story was so popular that Astronomy Magazine re-published it, and The Conversation asked Dr. Champagne if she might be able to write a story for children about her research area. The result: a kid-friendly article that explores why some black holes are bigger than others. Read it here, and be sure to share it with the curious young readers in your life!
