Black Holes and Supernovae: What’s Left When the Largest Stars Die

Black Holes: What’s Left When the Very Largest Stars Die – (Plus:  Saving the Earth from Asteroids!)

What is a black hole?  And who first proposed such a strange concept—an object that distorts both time and space in seemingly crazy ways?  How big are black holes, and how massive?  How can such strange things form?  Are black holes truly black, or can we see them?  Where would we look?  How could one be detected?  Perhaps most important—have we detected any?  And just for fun:  what would happen if we fell into one?  Plus—have you heard that NASA is trying to move an asteroid around?  And are you ready for the planets, constellations, and meteors that October has to offer?  Join us by Zoom to learn more!
