DISTORTIONS IN SPACETIME AT MANCHESTER SCIENCE FESTIVAL One of the highlights of this year's Manchester Science Festival programme, this immersive art installation imagined what it would be like to be sucked inside one of space's most mysterious phenomenons - a black hole.
Among his topics are the genesis of galaxies and the birth of giant black holes, gravitational waves: spacetime vibrations, neutron stars: the largest atomic nuclei in the universe, black holes as the crown jewel of Einstein's theory, and death and birth: the tale of cosmic explosions.
The mass inferred by spacetime curvature matches the mass as measured by the stars' motions--exactly as general relativity predicts.
