"Unlocking the Secrets of Why Black Holes Shine… in the Laboratory"
by Cami Collins, UW-Madison Plasma Physics
How do stars and planets form? Why are some black holes the brightest objects in the universe? These questions have been stumping astrophysicists for decades, but the underlying physical mechanism may soon be revealed in a hot, spinning laboratory plasma at UW-Madison.
Build and learn to use your own telescope! We will construct the telescope, help you learn to use the lenses that are included, and give you some tips for observing. The fee for the workshop is $25 which includes the Galileoscope telescope kit. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register for the workshop.
