Not so long ago, black holes were considered an esoteric idea. Today, their existence has been confirmed experimentally, but the study of their origin and impact on their surroundings remain at the forefront of modern astronomy.
Hear Professor of Extragalactic Astronomy Carole Mundell discuss black holes and how recent technological advances have allowed astronomers to harvest light from across the electromagnetic spectrum and thus probe the nature of space-time itself.
Carole Mundell is Professor of Extragalactic Astronomy and Head of Astrophysics at the University of Bath. She is also Head of the Department of Physics and Chief Scientific Adviser (CSA) at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office since October 2018.
She was appointed to a Professorship in 2007 and currently holds a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award for the study of black hole-driven explosions and the dynamic Universe.
