The other end of a black hole - with James Beacham

  • Am Vor 3 Monate

    The Royal InstitutionThe Royal Institution

    What would happen if you fell into a black hole? Join James Beacham, particle physicist at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, as he explores what happens when the fabric of reality - physical or societal - gets twisted beyond recognition.

    James Beacham searches for answers to the biggest open questions of physics using the largest experiment ever, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. He hunts for dark matter, gravitons, quantum black holes, and dark photons as a member of the ATLAS collaboration, one of the teams that discovered the Higgs boson in 2012.

    In addition to his research, he is a frequent keynote speaker about science, innovation, the future of technology, and art at events and venues around the world, including the American Museum of Natural History, the Royal Institution, SXSW, and the BBC, as well as private events for companies and corporations, including KPMG, Bain, Dept Agency, and many others.

    This talk was recorded at the Royal Institution on 28 October 2021.

    1:11 What causes gravity?
    4:19 What is space?
    7:55 The flow and mobility of space causing black holes
    14:33 How do we know black holes really exist?
    19:58 How to make a black hole
    26:08 Could we be living in a giant black hole?
    31:26 The universe-in-a-black-hole idea
    36:44 Why the large hadron collider could only make a miniature black hole
    45:04 Building a big bang machine in space
    47:25 Journey into a black hole
    52:41 Our societal black hole

I love the way some of these present day physicists are incredibly good presenters, and explain it so well to us laypeople

this was a very interesting presentation. So many questions that still have no answer . Dr. James is amazing. I'm just now getting into the science of our universe. Every video I watch and every book I read it leaves me wanting more and more every time!

Another home run by the RI! Thank you Dr. Beacham for a fascinating and powerful lecture.

This guy is fantastic at making big concepts very understandable.

What happens to entangled electrons if we send one of them into event horizon and we change the spin of the other one outside the black hole. Does the spin of the "black hole electron" change? Does quantum entanglement work even in this scenario?

wow... just wow man...totally in awe.. I feel fascinated like the first time I learned about black holes... I feel like I understand so many details I had trouble understanding before I watched this video... well done sir. I'm feeling inspired to learn more... thank you for that

Slušajući ovog naučnika u isto vreme placem i imam osmijeh na licu. Osjecam zabrinutost i sreću u isto vrijeme! Potrebu da podržim nauku . Da vičem glasno da me Planeta čuje. Nemam doboljno znanja ali uživam da slusam i pratim godinama naučna dostignuća . Hvala na ovom divnom iskustvu! Hvala sto si me odveo do neslućenih daljina i vratio nazad na nasu divnu Planetu.

The thing that makes me feel extra insignificant right now is like...what if we're only on a very tiny, thin little circle inside the event horizon where our laws of physics remain stable? What if the event horizon is so huge that even a blip of falling into it is the entire lifespan of our stable-ish observable universe?

A complex, but simple proposition that's made me really think! I tried explaining it to my 10 year old the best I could and it even blew her mind! A great watch... plus he's REALLY loving it, which made me love watching it even more. 😊

I love James's lively sense of humour, pauses, connection with the audience and even the ‘apple’ as a black hole... an excellent example of great public speaking... and amazing idea with his connection with our societal 'Black Hole'... Outstanding! 🙏 BKM 🎭

This is the easiest-to-understand description of black hole I have ever listened to... at the same time, I learned many new things around this topic... loved it

the whole idea of another universe being within a blackhole is something I've thought about many times, and I've heard pondered by others as well, but just a thought experiment. The fact that some mathematics points to that being a possibility is pretty nuts. But I have thought about how a black hole appears in an instant and how similar it is to a black hole. And I think I've even heard physicist's say that the same thing that kills black holes would kill the universe, which is essentially the cold. The very very very very cold, which causes everything to slowly lose energy.

Brilliant lecture.. The monologues during the last 15 minutes was nothing less than a monologue from a Shakespeare play.. great story telling..

The illustris simulation was a sphere and I've seen other simulations with a cube as the container. I recommend making a helix shaped container with a sphere at the center where the singularity starts. It would look like the symbol for infinity from a side view.

This was a very good presentation my only wish is that it was 2 hours or 3 hours long very well spoken it was both entertaining and educational and inspirational the end.

Love this guy! About as clear as obscure subjects can be made.

I've thought this way for years. It just always made sense to me. Just like facing two mirrors together and they have infinite reflections.
