Lecture: Black Holes: The End of Time or a New Beginning?
Interested in why astrophysicists increasingly see blackholes as creators not destroyers? New research suggests that black holes play a major role in the formation and evolution of galaxies, stars, and planets. Join Dr. Blandford at Foothill College to understand why scientists now think that black holes (of various sizes) actually do exist, describe some of their strange properties, and explain their 'environmental impact' on the universe at large. The talk will conclude with a preview of some new approaches to learning about the weird and wonderful behavior of black holes. Free, parking on campus $3.
