Everyone has heard of black holes, and everyone knows they are one of the most mysterious and enigmatic objects in the universe, but they could also be extremely dangerous…if one ventured too close. In this lively and well-illustrated talk, Dr. Mike Inglis, Professor of Astronomy & Astrophysics at Suffolk County Community College, present the many disparate ways a Black Hole can kill you! Dr. Inglis is a well-known, and respected astronomer on both sides of the Atlantic, and has a life-long passion for the promotion of astronomy and astrophysics. He completed postdoctoral work at the University of Hertfordshire and Warwick University (both in the UK) and at Princeton University (USA), and has used some of the world’s largest telescopes in Australia, Tenerife, La Palma, and Hawaii. Following this talk at 9:00pm (weather permitting) telescopes will be available for a guided tour of the night sky hosted by Montauk Observatory astronomers.
