Black holes are perhaps the most mind-boggling objects ever conceived by physicists and there is hardly any science fiction series today that will not feature them in some capacity. However, black holes are also very much observable and one of the major topics of today’s X-ray astronomy. Join, Dr. Victoria Grinberg of the MIT Kavli Institute for Observing Black Holes, a presentation on the astrophysical black holes, at Marlar Lounge (37-252), on Thursday, January 21, 2:00pm.
