Abstract:

Program 5: Discusses Hawking's specialty, black holes. With the invention of radio astronomy over 50 years ago many astronomical discoveries came to light including ultraluminous quasars, wormholes, black holes and singularities. It was discovered that quasars, bizarre objects billions of light years away with a power output greater than all of the stars in our galaxy put together, shine brightly as matter is sucked into a black hole and heats up due to friction. Such discoveries seem to allow for travel over millions of miles of space or even time travel and have even led to SETI--the search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence--looking for stray alien communications.
