Andrew Hamilton


Andrew Hamilton is an astrophysicist known for his scientifically accurate general relativistic visualizations of black holes, which have appeared on a number of TV documentary programs, including Nova and National Geographic, in a show at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and on the web, including on YouTube. His computerized renderings, which take viewers into black holes utilizing video game software developed by Silicon Graphics and are based on Einstein’s equations, are designed to visualize the unseen, he told The New York Times. “When I started this, I had no idea what would emerge from the equations,” he said.

Dr. Hamilton, who has published broadly in the fields of astrophysics, cosmology and relativity, is Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a Fellow and current Chair of the JILA research institute.
