The Monster at the Heart of our Galaxy

with Andrea Ghez | 2020 Nobel Laureate, Astrophysicist | Professor of Physics and Astronomy, UCLA

Nobel Laureate and astrophysicist Andrea Ghez tells the story of how we’ve been able to find a supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. This discovery not only provided us with the best evidence yet that these exotic objects really do exist, but it also presents us with an opportunity to study the fundamental physics of how black holes warp space time and what role this black hole has played on the formation and evolution of our galaxy.
