MAY Film Night: Super Massive Black Holes
At May Film night Ken Hulls uses two films to look in detail at Super Massive Black Holes.
After an introduction, the first looks in detail at the prediction and subsequent discovery of the super massive 4.5 million solar mass black hole at the middle of the Milky Way, explaining the science and techniques involved. The second looks in detail at the making of the photograph of the 6.5 Billion solar mass black hole at the centre of the M87 galaxy, published in late 2019 with update March 2021. The film looks at how the photograph of this object, which is 55 million light years away was made, and what it tells us.
