Whys Guys: Black holes

Morning Show Features

A major astronomical event happened on Tuesday.

Paul Kwiat shares how we can see a black hole with our own eyes for Whys Guys Wednesday.

“A black hole is a region of spacetime where gravity is so strong that nothing—no particles or even electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from it. The theory of general relativity predicts that a sufficiently compact mass can deform spacetime to form a black hole.”
