Event Details

As an invited distinguished lecturer for the University of Waterloo Department of Physics and Astronomy, Dr. Laura Ferrarese of the National Research Council, and University of Victoria will be speaking on the topic of "Black Holes: Into the Heart of Darkness".

This lecture will take the audience on a fascinating journey, from the formulation of the theory of black holes — in 1916 — to the most recent observational and theoretical efforts — which include an unprecedented view of the Virgo cluster and its galaxies — and into the future, when it will be technologically possible to detect the ripples in spacetime produced by the coalescence of supermassive black holes — short of the Big Bang itself, the most energetic event in the Universe.
