    New Vistas in Astronomy: Imaging a Black Hole

    7:00pm

    Location: 

    Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian—Online

    Black holes are cosmic objects so small and dense that nothing, not even light, can escape their gravitational pull. Until recently, no one had ever seen what a black hole actually looked like. Einstein's theories predict that a distant observer should see a ring of light encircling the black hole, which forms when radiation emitted by infalling hot gas is lensed by the extreme gravity near the event horizon. The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) is a global array of radio dishes, linked together by a network of atomic clocks to form an Earth-sized virtual telescope that can resolve the...

    Location: 

    Harvard Ed Portal—Online

    Join policy makers, urban designers, and artists in Boston and Cambridge for a discussion about the future of public art!

    Public art has the potential to make a community a more vibrant and welcoming place. Free and accessible to all, it also has the power to provoke debate about our shared cultural experience. As engaged citizens call for the removal of certain public monuments that evoke harmful systems, the conversation about the role of public art in our communities gains momentum.

    On October 5, join City of Boston Chief of Arts & Culture Kara Elliott-Ortega...
