Cosmic Thursdays Lecture - Supermassive Black Holes

What is a supermassive black hole and how does it affect the host galaxy? Join our virtual lecture to learn about these monstrous objects! In this lecture, Prof. Gabriela Canalizo from UCR Astronomy will give a brief summary of our current knowledge of black holes. She will introduce some astronomical observations that have allowed us to learn about these fascinating yet mysterious objects, including the exciting recent discoveries regarding the supermassive black hole in our own Milky Way galaxy. The lecture will also discuss popular misconceptions about black holes as well as a few intriguing possibilities (such as time travel) that have not yet been tested.
