PIRSA:C08026 - Black Hole Science CafesPODCAST Subscribe to podcast

The "Black Hole Science Cafes" are a rebirth of Perimeter Institute's highly successful "Black Hole Sessions," which provided an opportunity for members of the community interested in the exciting research happening at PI to engage in informal discussions with researchers and members of the PI Outreach Team. To learn about fascinating, cutting edge ideas about how our universe works - as revealed by theoretical physics - and ask questions of PI researchers. The Cafes will continue this tradition but will be made available to a worldwide audience through the PI website. The Cafes consist of a 20 minute introduction to a chosen topic by Dr. Richard Epp of the PI Outreach Team, followed by a 40 minute Question and Answer session, possibly featuring a PI researcher specializing in that topic.

Our Quirky Quantum World
Abstract: Our universe is unquestionably quantum in nature. What does this mean? Why does it matter? What’s in it for me? Join us for a fun and fascinating session on “what you need to know about the quantum.” Find out why we can’t live without it. Discover what’s so unbelievably quirky about it. An... read more

The World as a Hologram?
Abstract: Our universe has a split personality: quantum and relativity. Understanding how the two can coexist, i.e. how our universe can exist, is one of the greatest challenges facing theoretical physicists in the 21st century. Join us for a simple but mind-bending thought experiment that hints at some fasci... read more

P.I. Chats: Faster-than-light neutrinos?
Abstract: Can neutrinos really travel faster than light? Recently released experimental data from CERN suggests that they can. Join host Dr. Richard Epp and a panel of Perimeter Institute scientists in a live webinar to discuss this unexpected and puzzling experimental result, and some theoretical questions i... read more
