Science Café: BLACK HOLE APOCALYPSE

NOVA: Black Hole Apocalypse



February Science Café:

BLACK HOLE APOCALYPSE

Saturday, February 24
10:00am-Noon
UNM Continuing Education - Room C
1634 University Blvd NE



Black holes are the most enigmatic and exotic objects in the universe. They’re also the most powerful, with gravity so strong it can actually capture light. And they’re destructive, swallowing gas, entire planets, even giant stars. Anything that falls into them vanishes…forever. Where do they come from? And what can they tell us about the nature of space, time and gravity?


Come to the February New Mexico PBS Science Café, watch a segment of NOVA Black Hole Apocalypse and join a discussion with Leonard Duda, Ph.D., retired Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque after 37 years as a principal member of technical staff. Dr. Duda will review what astronomers and scientists know about black holes, how they form, how astronomers find them, where they are in the universe, and why they are so interesting to scientists and nonscientists.


Admission to the café is free, but a reservation is required. RSVP to Rose Poston at 277-2396 or rposton@newmexicopbs.org. Seats are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Be more curious…be more amazed…come to the New Mexico PBS Science Café.

Long Program Description:
This one-hour special follows the journey of the Native Warrior as he (and she) continue conflict resolution in order to survive and secure resources and culture. The answer to "Why Fight" requires a complex look at the truth through decades of stereotypes and misperceptions. Remarkably, the answer has stayed the same, whether during the 1500s Tiguex War, the Indian Wars of the 1800s, the World Wars, modern Warfare, or continued modern fights for sovereignty and environment. To Protect and Defend - the cohesive thread that connects generations and tribes. Vietnam war veteran and actor Wes Studi (Geronimo, Last of the Mohicans, Hostiles) narrates and appears in the film.

Short Program Description:
Explore how New Mexico’s Chacoan people expressed a complex solar and lunar cosmology in their architecture.

Long Program Description:
Chaco Canyon, located in northwest New Mexico, is perhaps the only site in the world constructed in an elaborate pattern that mirrors the yearly cycle of the sun and the 19-year cycle of the moon. How did an ancient civilization, with no known written language, arrange its buildings into a virtual celestial calendar, spanning an area roughly the size of Ireland? Why did this society, ancestors of today's Pueblo Indians, choose to establish the center of their world in the middle of such an arid, barren land? And why, after constructing buildings the size of the Roman Coliseum, did these same people deliberately seal them and abruptly leave? These enigmas have puzzled archaeologists for centuries. This program presents substantial evidence that the Chacoan people expressed a complex solar and lunar cosmology in their magnificent architecture. The discoveries documented in the film have transformed scientific understanding of this site -- one of the most elaborate and mysterious of ancient Native-American ruins -- and are revolutionizing perceptions of the Chacoan civilization. Robert Redford narrates.
