Wormholes, Exomoons and Black Holes: Journey to the Cosmic Frontier

Saturday, June 1, 2024
3:30 pm - 5:30 pm EST

Journey to the very frontier of astrophysical exploration, from black holes that may have been produced in the big bang, to the search for life on moons orbiting distant planets, to the mind-bending speculation that we may be able to create wormholes—tunnels through spacetime—in the laboratory.

This program is part of the Big Ideas series, supported by the John Templeton Foundation.
