Join us this Library and Information Week for an adventure in space and time with Associate Professor Danail Obreschkow, astrophysicist and head of the International Space Centre.
Under extreme gravity, space and time defy our intuition. They start to bend and morph into one another, producing some of the most enigmatic phenomena in the Universe. Among them are black holes that pierce through space, bend everything in their vicinity and slow down time beyond recognition. Danail Obreschkow will provide a captivating view into the modern theory of spacetime, concluding with an unstoppable journey into a black hole!
