Ever wonder how long it takes for a massive black hole to spiral into the center of a galaxy? The authors of this article take a close look at the effects of dynamical friction on orbital decay to see how estimations like this are made.
The article tells the story of the most advanced scientific rover ever built, the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover, that has just landed on the Red Planet. This is an ambitious mission that links the fields of astronomy, physics, geology, chemistry, and biology.
