Black Holes and the Event Horizon Telescope

Sunday 1st November 2020 from 18:30pm to 19:30pm

Online event by Yorkshire Dales National Park

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.
