Dear friend of Arkadia,

You are invited to Black Holes in the Universe by John Regan on Thursday 24.7 at 6pm at Arkadia (Nervanderinkatu 11)

John will review the history behind the theory of black holes from their origins in Einstein‘s General Theory of Relativity. He’ll also discuss the formation of black holes throughout the Universe and he’ll pay special attention to the black hole at the centre of our own galaxy which is experiencing a unique event at the current time. he’ll then finish by talking about some more exotic phenomena including wormholes in space, white holes etc.


Warm regards,
