“Universe and Black Holes” discussed at CIU

By Ahmet Abdulaziz ….

The mystery of black holes has remained a hot topic among scientists and social circles, for the last few years. The Cyprus International University (CIU) recently organised a short lecture, where detailed information was provided about the “Universe and the Black Holes”.

According to the information provided by the University, Prof. Dr. Vali Bashiry, from the Faculty of Basic Sciences and Humanities, Faculty of Arts and Sciences of Cyprus International University (CIU),  gave information about the mysterious “Universe and Black Holes.”

Prof. Dr. Vali Bashiry explained to the students about the big explosion and universe formation. He pointed out the concepts of dark matter and dark energy. Information was given about the problems that the dark matter and dark energies are solving and the possible end of the stars.

Bashiry said black holes in space are large enough that any substance or radiation cannot escape from the mass gravitational field. “In fact, black holes are usually caused by the depletion of light of the stars (energy) as a result of the collapse.” 

According to the estimates, in the Milky Way, there are at least 100 million black holes. He added that there is a large black hole in the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. Prof. Dr. Bashiry explained some very interesting properties of black holes and made explanations especially about the last displayed black hole photo.

Bashiry pointed out that this image is actually the first notable observation of a black hole and it confirmed the predictions of Einstein’s general theory of relativity on a large scale.

“In this context, black holes are thought not to have a singular point and structure. If it has the material structure, supersymmetric particles can create black holes and dark matter” he said.
