Black Holes Explained

Synopsis
First formed in the equations of Einstein and then popularised in the stories of science-fiction authors, black holes are at the heart of some of the most intriguing phenomena in the universe. They are also ideal gateways to fundamental concepts in astronomy, including the general theory of relativity and the study of the centre of galaxies.
This DVD consists of 12 lectures of 30 minutes each by Professor Alex Filippenko from the University of California, Berkeley, and an 83-page printed course guidebook.
