The Science of the Movie, Interstellar
Holes: Wormy and Black
March 21, 2019, 4 to 6PM at La Mirage Hotel and Spa
Making Sense of Science is back with its most exciting and informative seminar ever. We will explore the mysteries inherent in black holes; discover if worm holes really exists and if they can be used for intergalactic travel; and we will even see just how one equation, Einstein’s equation of general relativity, may lead to the answer.(I know you experts out there know the one equation is really hiding 10 separate equations, but how do they all come together to make such exact predictions). You won’t want to miss this year’s first seminar and follow the discussion as we show excerpts from the movie, Interstellar. So join us on Thursday, March 21 from 4 to 6 PM at La Mirage Garden Hotel and Spa.
