Good craft beer and Astronomy! What could be a better pair?
"The Warped Side of the Universe"
Our Universe has a "warped side": objects and phenomena that are made not from matter, but rather from warped space and warped time. Examples include black holes, and the big-bang singularity from which
the Universe was born. Thorne will discuss this mysterious warped side, the quest to simulate it using supercomputers, and the quest to observe it using and strange telescopes. (free- Limited to first 50 Attendees)
