February Science Café:
BLACK HOLE APOCALYPSE
Saturday, February 24
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
