Black Holes: From Speculative to Spectacular

  • JJR Macleod Auditorium 1 King's College Circle Toronto, ON, M5S 1A8 Canada (map)

Black holes are perhaps the strangest thing in a very strange universe. An almost unbelievable prediction of Einstein’s theory of General Relativity, black holes create a gravitational pull so strong, they can trap anything that gets too close. Even light. Black holes also pull on our imaginations, often appearing as the villains in science fiction. Join RCIScience for an exploration of the latest science about black holes and a discussion about how they are depicted in popular culture. Are black holes truly terrifying? Or simply misunderstood monsters.
