Description

Atheism UK is excited to host Lawrence Krauss: Black Holes - Nothing from Something …Or, The Cosmos Strikes Back. Lawrence will take us on a journey to discover Black Holes - one of the most amazing phenomena in the cosmos. Can nothing come from something? The evening will finish with a Q&A session about issues important to humanity, life, the origin of the universe & everything.

Lawrence Krauss says 'Black Holes are the hottest things in astrophysics, both literally and metaphorically. First proposed over 200 years ago, until recently Black Holes were puzzling theoretical objects whose actual existence in the Universe was still controversial. In the past five years, we have observed black holes and their cosmic consequences in ways that seemed like science fiction even a decade ago., as I shall describe. We have discovered space ‘ringing’ in response to the collision of black holes located in a galaxies billions of light-years away, and we now have a photograph of an actual supermassive black hole at the centre of a nearby galaxy. While these discoveries are providing us with unprecedented new information on the cosmos, much about black holes is still shrouded in mystery. At stake is our understanding of our cosmic origins, and also the fundamental nature of physics itself.'
