At the centre of our Milky Way – Talk by Reinhard Genzel

Nobel laureate Prof. Reinhard Genzel will give a talk to the public on May 4th, 2022, giving insights into the formation of Black Holes and revealing new findings from high resolution measurements in the infrared and radio range. With the help of these measurements, Prof. Genzel was able to confirm a Black Hole at the centre of our Milky Way and to show that in fact, most galaxies host massive Black Holes, which must have formed as early as 1 billion years after the Big Bang.

The talk will be held in German and take place at 7 pm at “Casino Anbau West” on Campus Westend, Goethe University Frankfurt. If you would like to attend, please register here. There will also be a live stream on YouTube (no registration necessary).
