Watch Live Webcast: Black Holes and Our Cosmic Evolution

How do supermassive black holes form, and what role do they play in shaping galaxies and galaxy clusters? On Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at 19:00 UTC (12:00 p.m. PDT, 3:00 pm EDT) the Kavli Foundation is hosting a live Google+ Hangout to answer your questions about black holes. Participants in the Hangout will be Roger Blandford from the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology at Stanford University, Priyamvada Natarajan from Yale University, and John Wise from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

You can watch live below. To submit questions ahead of time or during the webcast, email to info@kavlifoundation.org or post on Twitter with hashtag #KavliLive.

You can see more information about the webcast at the Kavli Foundation website. There will also be a followup Hangout on September 25 that will focus on black holes and the “firewall paradox” that made news in recent weeks, featuring noted researcher Leonard Susskind. We’ll post a new article with that webcast as the day approaches.
