Frontiers in Science 2018 (Questions: Contact Kristen Morano)
“Black Holes, Dark but Illuminating”
Speaker: Dr. Wolfgang Tichy
When: March 23rd, 2018, 3:30PM-5:00 PM
Location: Lifelong Learning Auditorium
Parking: Lot 1g
Abstract: Black holes are fascinating objects that can be pictured as one-way
membranes through which objects can enter but not leave again. In this
talk, we will discuss and explain some of their interesting properties.
For example, according to Einstein, when two black holes collide they
can emit copious amounts of gravitational waves. This has only recently
been directly observed and has led to the Physics Nobel Prize in 2017.
Also as Hawking showed, black holes are not completely black, but can
also radiate by themselves. Both these effects have far-reaching
consequences that help us better understand the universe we live in.
