Stephen Hawking’s Lectures on Black Holes Now Fully Animated with Chalkboard Illustrations

in Physics | February 5th, 2016

A quick note: This week, the BBC posted the second of Stephen Hawking’s Reith Lectures focusing on Black Holes. And, once again, they’ve animated the presentation with some fun chalkboard illustrations. You can watch Part 1, “Do Black Holes Have No Hair?” here. And now Part 2, “Black Holes Ain’t as Black as They Are Painted,” above. Hawking is getting a little playful with his grammar, isn’t he? Enjoy.

    Hmm. Working on my iPad, so I am inclined to think there is a non-flash version but the website can’t figure out that it needs to serve it to you.
