"No Exit! Black Holes, Neutron Stars, and Gravitational Collapse"

John Friedman - Department of Physics

The sun, moon, and stars are brought to earth in vivid action in this look at the physics of our universe. Professor John Friedman, a world-recognized expert in relativistic astrophysics and quantum gravity, takes the highly complex—the speed of light; the role of electrons, protons, and neutrons in the life cycle of a star; and the workings if a black hole—and makes it both accessible and interesting.
