Black Hole Search Comes Home

An international group of researchers, including astronomers from the University of Minnesota, have launched a new "citizen science" project called Galaxy Zoo.  The project allows anyone to become a cosmic explorer by looking for black holes in space.   And yes, this is something you can do from the comfort of your own home. 

 

Lawrence Rudnick is a University of Minnesota Professor and an astrophysicist who studies large-scale structures in the Universe.  He talked with KFAI’s John Helgeson, who asked the professor why black holes are important.
