Looking for Black HolesFamily friendly - adult with child image.

Black holes are perhaps the most mind-boggling objects ever conceived by physicists. However, black holes are also very much observable and one of the major topics of today's X-ray astronomy. In this talk, Dr. Victoria Grinberg will give a very short overview of what black holes are, where we find astrophysical black holes, and why we need X-ray astronomy to observe black holes. She'll also discuss how observations of both supermassive black holes and "small" black holes improve our understanding of the physics of our universe.
