AoT Baton Rouge – 10 July Varsity Theatre

Welcome to the greatest science talks in all of Baton Rouge! This month we have:

Dr. Rob Hynes

How we “see” Black Holes

Black holes are some of the most mysterious objects in the universe! Not just because we do not want to get close to them, but also because their nature does not allow for simple direct observations. I will discuss some of the ways we observe their presence in the Universe including accretion, gravitational waves, and this new silhouette picture.

Chandra: the First 20 Years

The Chandra X-Ray observatory is one of the great space observatories and probes the mysteries of the x-ray universe. When astronomers use x-ray light to observe the sky, they can see an otherwise invisible world. We will share the history and successes of the Chandra X-ray Observatory to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
