College of Science Calendar of Events 2018

Coming up!

Frontiers in Science 2018 (Questions: Contact Kristen Morano)
“Black Holes, Dark but Illuminating”

  • Speaker: Dr. Wolfgang Tichy
  • When: March 23rd, 20183:30PM-5:00 PM
  • Location: Lifelong Learning Auditorium
  • Parking: Lot 1g

Abstract: Black holes are fascinating objects that can be pictured as one-way  membranes through which objects can enter but not leave again. In this  talk, we will discuss and explain some of their interesting properties.  For example, according to Einstein, when two black holes collide they  can emit copious amounts of gravitational waves. This has only recently  been directly observed and has led to the Physics Nobel Prize in 2017.  Also as Hawking showed, black holes are not completely black, but can  also radiate by themselves. Both these effects have far-reaching  consequences that help us better understand the universe we live in.

Ocean Science Lecture Series 2018

The John & Barbara Ferrera Ocean Science Lecture Series provides a forum for the community at large to learn about Harbor Branch's most recent discoveries directly from the scientists who made them. The invited speakers from other institutions are colleagues who work on topics relevant to our Harbor Branch research themes.
