    Black holes are the strangest things in the Universe at the edge of human understanding. It is the remnant core of a massive star that has exhausted its nuclear fuel and dies, collapsing under its own gravity.

    We will continue our journey through the YS Astrophysics Workshop Series and focus this time on Black Holes. The material is derived from the successful 12-week course offered at the YS Science Centre over a period of three months. This workshop will be challenging and use concepts from Quantum Mechanics and Relativity to study Astronomy. Only highly motivated students are recommended to register.

    All registrants will be given a preliminary online quiz. Please ensure that the student takes the quiz honestly.

    Questions to explore:

    What is a black hole?
    How are they formed?
    What is Event Horizon?
    Is the film "Interstellar" accurate?
    What happens when you fall into a black hole?
    How does gravity affect light when photons have no mass?
    What is a singularity?
    What are wormholes?
    How big can black holes get?

    Workshop Objective:

    Explore astrophysics further and study the science behind Black Holes.
    Review stellar mechanics and clarify the conditions necessary for a black hole to form.
    Apply concepts from Electromagnetism and Quantum Physics to understand how Black Holes behave.
    Introduce concepts like Schwarzschild radius, Hawking radiation, information loss paradox, etc.

    The workshop will comprise of three parts:

    Part I
    Review of Stellar Mechanics

    Types of stars
    Stellar nucleosynthesis
    Supernovae
    How are black holes, neutron stars, and white dwarves formed?
    Chandrasekhar Limit

    Part II
    Black Holes

    HIstory, prediction, and detection
    Schwarzschild radius and Event Horizon
    Virtual particles and Hawking radiation

    Part III
    Genius of Einstein

    General Relativity of Einstein
    Gravitational Lensing
    Detection of Black Holes
    Gravitational Waves

    Activities/Experiments:

    Astronomy Quiz
    Flow Chart - Life of a Star
    Gravitational lensing
