Black holes are both astrophysical phenomena and theoretical “laboratories” where scientists test their understanding of physics. From gravitational radiation to X-ray binary star systems, Steven Gubser and Frans Pretorius use creative thought experiments to explain the fantastical properties of black holes, and how the same qualities that capture the public imagination inform today’s research.
A book signing will follow.
