Dr. Avi Loeb and Dr. Yu on Black Holes

In this classic episode from May 23, 2019, David Gornoski and Dr. Weiping Yu are joined by theoretical physicist Abraham “Avi” Loeb. Dr. Yu and Dr. Avi Loeb comment on the first black hole image that was released last year. Do black holes exist? If black holes do exist, what exactly happens near the singularity? Can black holes help us in explaining the Big Bang? “Physics is a dialogue with nature; it’s not a monologue,” Dr. Loeb says, “We have to do experiments and check if our ideas are correct.” Listen to the full episode for all this and more.
