September Meeting - Paul Fellows
Our next monthly meeting is on Thursday, 6th September 2018 at 7:30pm.
Hawking, Black Holes and the Edge of Physics
Einstein’s theories that nothing could ever escape from a black hole troubled the young researcher Stephen Hawking leading him to publish his 1976 paper bringing together General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics for the first time. This paper revealed, in Stephen’s own words, that ‘Black holes ain’t so Black!’ which shocked the scientific world.
Paul guides the listener through these ideas in straightforward terms step-by-step.
