Dr. Leo Stein, Assistant Professor in Physics and Astronomy at the University of Mississippi will present "The Truth about Black Holes."  

Black holes: the most powerful objects in the universe. Are they really ravenous space monsters, or merely misunderstood? What does spaghetti have to do with black holes? Are black holes actually black? We'll go over what astrophysicists know and don't know about black holes, and try to clear up some common misconceptions.
