A Conversation with the Stars
Escape for an evening with a trip to a black hole. Astrophysicist Sabrina Stierwalt will take us on a tour of the most mysterious objects the universe has to offer. How do we know black holes exist? How do they form? What would happen if you fell into one?
Dr Stierwalt will discuss the latest research, including her own, into how supermassive black holes form, what the biggest black holes look like, and why the universe appears to be missing a population of smaller black holes.
Dr Stierwalt is an extragalactic astrophysicist and a professor of physics at Occidental College. She researches the physics of galaxy-galaxy collisions which includes the growth of black holes.
