Black Holes, Unscripted

Prof. Niayesh Afshordi (Perimeter Institute)


Black Holes occupy a special place in the fascination of astronomers and physicists. From the most speculative mathematical physicist to the most sensible radio astronomer, everyone has their own narrative of what lies within a black hole, based on their own preconceptions. This is in contrast to the more empirical and agnostic approach that we take in studying (almost) everything else in physics. As an alternative, I will outline what I consider to be a physical roadmap to unravelling what lies within black holes.
