Astronomy Talk: Black Holes and the Fate of the Universe – Dr. Günter Hasinger

This is a recoding of a Keck Observatory Astronomy Talk given by Dr. Günter Hasinger, Astronomer and Director of the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy. His talk, 'Black Holes ad the Fate of the Universe', was given on November 20, 2012 at the Gates Performing Arts Center at Hawaii Preparatory Academy.

It's a little bit of the story of the Universe from beginning to end," said Dr. Hasinger. "What role do black holes have on the fate of the universe, what are they, and how we can understand them better?"

The W. M. Keck Observatory operates the largest, most scientifically productive telescopes on Earth. The two, 10-meter optical/infrared telescopes on the summit of Mauna Kea on the Island of Hawaii feature a suite of advanced instruments including imagers, multi-object spectrographs, high-resolution spectrographs, integral-field spectroscopy and a world-leading laser guide star adaptive optics system. The Observatory is a private 501(c) 3 non-profit organization and a scientific partnership of the California Institute of Technology, the University of California and NASA.
