A Deadly Dance: When black holes and neutron stars collide

What happens when the densest objects in the universe collide at half the speed of light? It starts with a stretch of a wobble in the fabric of spacetime, and sometimes ends in cosmic explosions that create some of the rarest and shiniest elements in the Universe. Together we'll learn how some of the most massive stars in the cosmos live and die with bang, to create the black hole and neutron star mergers we can "hear" colliding a hundred million light years away. This 45 minute "lecture" will combine cutting edge science and wacky humour to make the mysteries of merging black holes and neutron stars accessible to all ages and backgrounds.

COVID-19 requirements

As per the Hamilton Astronomical Society requirements, all attendees must be double vaccinated and will be required to provide proof of vaccination status by way of COVID-19 Vaccine Pass when entering the venue. We ask that all attendees scan in and we strongly encourage the use of face masks.
