"How to Photograph a Black Hole"

By Andy Briggs, Girona, Spain.

Astronomy and Science Communicator.

8PM Monday 16th of November.

This is a free lecture but you do need to book (below) in advance as numbers are limited! We are however heavily dependant on your generosity at all times but especially in these challenging times. Your donations help us to keep afloat and present you with lots of interesting and up to date information and events.

ABOUT THE LECTURE

This lecture will be presented on the ZOOM platform in line with Public Health Guidelines.

In April last year, humans' first image of a black hole was released. Andy Briggs explains how this momentous technological feat was achieved, what the image tells us about black holes and what the future holds for black hole astronomy using the Event Horizon Telescope.


ABOUT THE SPEAKER

 

 

Andy Briggs is a science and technology communicator and a great friend of Astronomy Ireland. He writes regularly for Astronomy Ireland magazine and the EarthSky.org website. Andy also presents radio programmes for Astro Radio (http://www.astroradio.earth).  Some will remember Andy gave, if not the best, certainly one of our best lectures in August 2019 to a live audience (those were the days) in Trinity College Dublin to rapturous applause.

Andy now lives in Spain about 15 minutes drive from Girona in Catalonia.
