Episodes

  • Black holes exist

    13/05/2019 Duration: 35min

    In this episode, we discuss, in awe, the first 'image' ever captured of a black hole (reference: https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/10/world/black-hole-photo-scn/index.html). We discuss how the image was captured and why the image looks the way it does. As well, we try to develop an appreciation for the magnitude of the mass of this black hole. This episode sets the stage for our next episode (7) of this season where we will finally broach the Holographic principle.
