Black Holes & a Cup of Tea
Date & Time:24 Apr 2018 @ 7pm
Click here to check your complimentary entry eligibility.
Presenter:Dr Lim Yen Kheng, Physics Department, National University of Singapore
Sponsor:Science Centre Singapore
Synopsis:What happens when a cup of tea falls into a black hole? /// Gravity is the force that holds the universe together, and yet much of it remains mysterious to us. Stephen Hawking's illustrious career has contributed great leaps to our understanding, in addition to bridging the gaps to other theories of physics, such as quantum mechanics and thermodynamics. All these bridges and roads seem to lead to one thing: black holes. /// In this Café, we will explore the many facets of black holes, including Hawking's revolutionary idea of how black holes can emit radiation and have 'temperature'. We will also discuss the information paradox, a conundrum that has stumped many physicists in recent years, and see Hawking's most recent attempts to solve it.
