Centre promises "personal education," and a big part of "personal" is knowing the persons who are part of your community. For that reason, we frequently include a photo of the individual making the submision—to help bring "names and faces together." If you prefer not to have your picture included, just say so on your submission and we'll honor that personal request as well.

Wednesday, Oct. 2. The Physics Colloquium and Film Series presents the one-hour film Monster of the Milky Way which follows the evidence for a super-massive black hole at the center of our galaxy. “At the heart of the Milky Way dwells one of the most destructive forces in the universe—a super-massive black hole that appears to have been hiding in plain sight for as long as man has explored the stars. Recently, scientists have concluded that when the great void falls into its cannibalistic demise, jets of radiation will be projected millions of miles into surrounding space incinerating everything, including planet Earth, in its path.” Anyone is welcome to come view this one-hour film with us. No scientific knowledge is required. The film begins shortly after 4 p.m. in Olin 124. For the current schedule of films and colloquia, see http://web.centre.edu/phy.
