Science Café “MONSTERS IN THE COSMIC SEA: Black hole tales from the edge of space and time”
April 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
We’ll take a voyage out from our little corner of the Cosmic Sea, mariners in search of the biggest monsters known: supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies. What will happen on an imaginary voyage near the event horizon of a black hole, and what does modern gravitational theory predict will happen to you ? (HINT: our poor cosmic voyagers are destined to have a very bad day!). Finally: an auditory sampling of the black hole content of the Universe.
