Make Sense Of Black Holes

Now you can.

For a limited time only, you get 70% off of a 4 disc lecture series: Black Holes Explained.

Presented by Alex Filippenko, Professor of Astronomy at the University of California, Berkeley.

"Nearly everyone has heard of black holes --regions in space where the force of gravity is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape -- but few people outside of complex scientific fields understand their true nature and their implications for our universe."

Now in the comfort of your own home, you can come to grips with black holes.

Black Holes Explained gives you 12 30-minute lectures by Professor Filippenko. Sit back in your LazyBoy as he schools you on the following topics:

Gamma-Ray Bursts --the Birth of Black Holes

Searching for Stellar-Mass Black Holes

Monster of the Milky Way and Other Galaxies

Quasars --Feasting Supermassive Black Holes

Stephen Hawking and Black Hole Evaporation

Black Holes and the Holographic Universe

Black Holes and the Large Hadron Collider

This offer was originally $199.95, but now the entire lecture series can be yours for only $39.95. You save $160!!

This offer expires August 13, 2010.

  1. wonder if it would help to drop some acid while i listen to these lectures?? well, i'm just glad that SOMEBODY is interested in that sort of thing. God bless them.

  2. I think every home should have a set. I sure wish I'd had this when I drove out to Ness and back for Old Settlers. I'm sure the miles would just fly by.
