    Episode 160: Galactic Jets

    Join us this week for part two of our mini-series in celebration of the James Webb Space Telescope! This time around, we meet with Georgia Stewart, a PhD student at UTAS, studying Active Galactic Nuclei. These objects are used by Georgia and her colleagues to age and classify stellar and star-forming regions, as well as the black holes, central to these galaxies.
    Listen in as Georgia discusses her pathway into astrophysics, as well as what it means to be a young woman in the field.
