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.
