COTR Museia – Public Lecture Series
2023/12/21 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PMFree
Join College of the Rockies’ Arts and Sciences Faculty and the Cranbrook Library for COTR Museia, a three-part public lecture series!
Leading the first lecture in this series, Black Holes – the Deepest Darkness and the Overpowering Light, is Dr. Ben Tippett, Astronomy and Physics Instructor in the Department of Math and Sciences at College of the Rockies. Dr. Tippett is also the creator of the podcast, The Titanium Physicist.
Black Holes are perhaps the most amazing things in the universe: made from the concepts of space and time itself, they are sink-holes from which not even light itself can escape. Despite this, they are the source of the brightest light in the cosmos.
In this talk, Dr. Tippett will explain their history, the paradoxes of their existence, the mysteries they contain inside of their cores, and the physical evidence we have that they really and truly exist.
This promises to be an entertaining and educational experience!
