Black holes can be the size of a star, or they can be millions of times larger than those with a similar mass to a star. The latter are found in the centers of galaxies and the matter that revolves around them is capable of producing very high amounts of energy. They are considered among the most fascinating and mysterious phenomena in the universe, and are the subject of the latest studies around the world.
Dr. Banessa will explain its properties in the light of the latest knowledge and state-of-the-art observational methods, and share the development of her research with enthusiasts and the curious.
