Why Black Holes are Not Black

November 15th, 2013 |

Rolf, Schimmrigk, associate professor of physics, and Monika Lynker, professor of physics and astronomy, will deliver the IU South Bend Research Award Lecture at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, in Room 1001, Wiekamp Hall, IU South Bend.

Their topic will be “Why Black Holes are Not Black.” An enormous black hole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy has focused renewed attention on these enigmatic objects. The lecture will review the nature of black holes and recent insights into string theory, which may explain why the temperature of a black hole is not zero.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
