Astronomy students watching the first ever picture of a black hole announced, April 10, 2019:
Want to learn all about the Big Bang? Read an article I wrote for New Principia online magazine on "The Secrets Behind the Earliest Picture of the Universe"
Below: A video lecture front of a glass board on the Right Hand Rule. I'm behind the glass, so write normally, but then the video is L-R flipped. This meant I had to use the Left hand to demonstrate the Right Hand Rule! Confusing!
I'm developing a "Citizen Science" site that helps people discover patterns in flickering X-rays from black holes. You can even hear the flickering converted into sound. Click here to try out the site.
I am working with Saku Vrtilek of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics on a new method to find which stars are neutron stars and which are black holes
