Astronomy: Colliding Galaxies & Monster Black Holes

Time: 7:00 PM-8:30 PM
Place: Keene Public Library, Auditorium, Keene, NH
Price: Free
Ages: Older
How did galaxies like our Milky Way form? Beautiful images of galaxies from telescopes often hide their violent pasts. Many galaxies grow by cannibalizing smaller galaxies or by crashing into each other in giant cosmic train wrecks. What's more, most galaxies (including our Milky Way) hide monster black holes in their centers, which sit quietly waiting to be fed. But when galaxies collide, these monsters awake…and they are anything but quiet. Astronomer Laura Blecha will tell us about the fate of galaxies and black holes in these collisions, including the ultimate fate of our own galaxy. Blecha is a Ph.D. candidate at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. The program is co-sponsored by the Keene Amateur Astronomy Club.

Featuring the latest planetarium show Fractal Zooms, your homeschooler will delve into the never-ending world of colorful patterns and shapes created from the simplest algebraic formula. Zoom in to patterns smaller than atoms, or out to see arrangements bigger than the universe. Level one will be introduced to the concept of scale and count objects in our universe using small numbers (such as moons around planets) and larger numbers (like stars in the galaxy). Level two will cover patterns and various scales in the universe. Level three will examine the occurrences of fractals in the universe, how the simplest equations can produce them, and Newton’s and Kepler’s laws.
