Benjamin Dean Astronomy Lectures
Mapping the Heavens
Priyamvada Natarajan, Yale University
In this talk, Dr. Natarajan discusses how our cosmic view has been transformed by two radical ideas in cosmology - dark matter and black holes. She will present the history of how we discovered these invisible entities, as well as recent leaps in our understanding of them, from mapping dark matter to the discovery of gravitational waves emitted by colliding black holes.
