Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas Black Holes

Event description

Take three top academics, some dangerous ideas, add one comedian and it’s the force of nature that is the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas (CODI).

Hosted by comedian Susan Morrison, and now in its eleventh year, CODI is sixty minutes of rapid-fire research from some of the finest minds in the country.

Black holes are dangerous: they will eat anything if it gets close enough - even light itself - but they also hold keys to understanding the laws governing our universe. So, if we can't go near black holes and can't see them, how can we learn anything about them? How do they form? Why are they so interesting? What's inside a black hole? Join Dr Tim Adamo, Dr Jelle Hartong and Dr Jan Sbierski (The University of Edinburgh) for an interactive hour of intrigue and imagination.
