Black Holes and the Event Horizon Telescope

Yorkshire Dales National Park
Image of a black hole EHT Outreach

In this talk Dr Fred considers one of the strangest phenomena in the universe – that of the black-hole. As well as an introduction to black holes the talk will discuss the recent very first direct image of a black hole and how it was made. Finally we have proved the existence of these strange and wonderful objects one hundred years after their prediction by Einstein’s general relativity theory.

This event is FREE OF CHARGE and will take the form of a Zoom meeting that will also be streamed LIVE to the Go Stargazing Facebook page. If you wish to participate in the Zoom meeting (where you may ask questions of the presenters) please register by clicking on the event website.

The event is taking place as part of the National Parks Virtual Dark Skies Week which is organised jointly by the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks, this with enthusiastic support from the team at Go Stargazing!
