Galaxy evolution is critically shaped by the energy injection from supermassive black holes (SMBHs). A major challenge is unraveling how the energy released near the SMBHs is distributed throughout galaxies and their environments. This white paper discusses the prospect of tackling this problem using high-resolution X-ray/microwave observations.
