Breamish Hall - Powburn
Powburn, Rothbury, NE66 4HT
Dr Adrian Jannetta will talk about how black holes are created and how astronomers are using gravity to study them from billions of light-years away. We’ll also hear about the monstrous supermassive blackhole at the heart of our own Milky Way and ponder the terrifying question…what happens if we fall into a black hole?
The talk will last approximately an hour and afterwards, weather permitting, you’ll get the chance to do some observing through NASTRO members’ telescopes and see the wonders of the night sky for yourself.
This event is free of charge however requires registration via the Eventbrite website.
