Fabio Pacucci discusses Black Holes on TED-Ed talks

“To end this short story, it is worth mentioning that now there is even an institute dedicated exclusively to the study of these objects, the Black Hole Initiative (BHI) at Harvard University. The BHI is an interdisciplinary center involving a collaboration between scientists from the fields of Astronomy, Physics, Mathematics and Philosophy, the first center worldwide to focus on the study of black holes: not bad for a space oddity.”

– Fabio Pacucci
