Nobel Prize, Andrea Ghez, Dr Gates discussed on Science Friday

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Ah, a solution that's right for all of humanity. Do you think the public gets this? Do you think they understand what's going on with black holes and then and your work? I think black holes are fascinating to the public for some reason, unlike so much of physics Black holes capture people's imagination. I mean, of course, I think it's helped by science fiction where people play with, you know, all sorts of, you know. Concept of space travel, but it means one of things I really like about working in this field is that you can hook capture that that hook that people have. Or that curiosity about black holes. So where do you go from here? You've won the Nobel Prize. What's what's next on your agenda? Oh, gosh, it's doing science. I mean, in my For me, it's never doing this. It's not about prizewinning, but rather about scientific exploration. So there's so much more for us to do in terms of understanding gravity and understanding the Astrophysical role that black holes play. And then you know, quite frankly working through these issues associated with the 30 M telescope, which another complicated their authority, and in some sense, you need people with E. I know the scientific stamp of ah, approval that can be viewed as leaders. Well, that's a good place to end it. I hope hope that comes to pass Dr Gates. Thank you for taking time to be with us today on congratulations again to you. And all your staff. Thanks so much. Thank you factor. Andrea Ghez is a professor of astronomy at the University of California in Los Angeles, where she also directs their Galactic Centre Research group. When we come back, we'll talk about the marvelous microbes that live on shipwrecks. We want to control the growth of microbes that could cause damage. We also want to maybe promote the growth of bacteria that can help preserve these rats. Stay with us. We'll be right.
