Frontiers in Astrophysics: Gravity's Engines


We’ve long understood black holes to be the points at which the universe as we know it comes to an end. Recent research, however, has led to new discoveries about black holes.

In this podcast from a recent “Frontiers in Astrophysics,” Caleb Scharf, Director of the Columbia Astrobiology Center, describes how these chasms in space-time don’t just vacuum up everything but release matter and rearrange the surrounding cosmos. Dr. Scharf’s talk took place at the Museum on September 10, 2012.
