(OLLI AT UVM PRESENTS) Distinguished Speaker Series: The Outer Limits: Exploring the Extremes of Astronomy with Bobby Farlice-Rubio

Oct 25, 2022
11:00 am to 12:00 pm

In recent years, astronomers have learned of the existence of "gravity waves" caused by massive stellar collisions. In December, NASA launched the most powerful telescope ever put in space. We are now observing things that were once purely theoretical. Just three years ago, radio astronomers snapped an image of a Black Hole for the first time in history. From these gigantic objects to the tiniest of things being smashed in the world's particle accelerators, our findings in physics are now also testing the limits of our imaginations! In this session, we will explore the latest discoveries and see if we can come to a new understanding of the increasingly strange nature of the universe.
