The Southern Vermont Astronomy Group (SoVerA) will be holding its monthly meeting and Public Presentation at 7 p.m., on Tuesday, December 8, at the Whiting Library in Chester.
The physical nature of Black Holes is difficult to comprehend. The objects behave in ways that curdle our visual imaginations. They are the ultimate drain from which nothing - ever - returns....right?
Al Boudreau, Astronomy Lecturer and Associate Fellow of the AIAA, will help us comprehend these continuing enigmas of the physical and very real world: Why didn't Einstein believe they could exist? Can we really use "worm holes" for future space travel? Can they reach out and grab us? Is "Capt. Kirk" in real trouble?
Come see what would happen if Earth did encounter a real black hole.
This presentation will be held rain or (star)-shine.
The Southern Vermont Astronomy Group (SoVerA) is an organization composed of amateur and professional astronomers, educators, students and members of the public. SoVerA is dedicated to making astronomy much more accessible to all.
