Episode 6: The Edge of All We Know

Topic: The Edge of All We Know | Raw Science Film Festival 2020, Winner Best Documentary Feature Moderator: Keri Kukral, Raw Science Guests: Physicist/Director , Peter Galison | Shep Doeleman, Andrew Strominger Film Description: Black holes stand at the limit of what we can know. The Event Horizon Telescope links observatories across the world to simulate an earth-sized telescope. With this tool the team pursues the first-ever picture of a black hole, resulting in an image seen by billions of people in April 2019. Meanwhile, Hawking and his team attack the black hole paradox at the heart of theoretical physics—Do predictive laws still function, even in these massive distortions of space and time? Weaving them together is a third strand, philosophical and exploratory using expressive animation. “Edge” is about practicing science at the highest level, a film where observation, theory, and philosophy combine to grasp these most mysterious objects. | Length: 43 minutes
