This presentation is aimed at late teens and adults.

Assistant Professor Li, in her presentation, will discuss the gravitational interactions between stars and supermassive black holes.

Supermassive black holes are common in the center of galaxies, surrounded by a large number of stars. Interactions between supermassive black holes and stars lead to interesting astrophysical phenomena. For instance, when a star gets sufficiently close to a supermassive black hole, the gravitational force from the supermassive black hole can stretch the star and rip the star apart.

Hope to see you there!
