The Kelvin Club’s third and final event of the term will take place exclusively on Zoom with Professor Joe Pesce, an astrophysicist and alumnus of Peterhouse. Professor Pesce is currently responsible for most of the US Government’s ground-based radio astronomy facilities, which have enabled groundbreaking insights into black holes.

ABSTRACT : Black holes are among the most enigmatic objects in the universe, and come in a variety of sizes, from several times the mass of the Sun to monsters with many billions of times the mass of the Sun (and maybe even atomic-sized ones). New advances in astrophysical instruments – with traditional electromagnetic observations as well as new ones using particles and gravitational waves – make this a golden age of black hole research. Recent findings from gravitational waves and the early universe are challenging traditional views.

Please join us at 8:30 pm on Zoom! A Q&A session will follow the talk.

All are welcome, no matter the discipline, for what promises to be a fascinating evening of science.

This talk is part of the Kelvin Club - The Scientific Society of Peterhouse, Cambridge series.
