S01E01 - Hyperspace with Dr Gaurav Khanna

January 20, 2020
This week on our debut episode I discuss Hyperspace with Dr Gaurav Khanna www.linkedin.com/in/gaurav-khanna a Professor in the Physics Department, and the Associate Director of the Center for Scientific Computing at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. He works on a variety of challenging problems in theoretical and computational physics. Dr Gaurav introduces me to hyperspace and blackholes and as a non-scientist (although learning everyday) I learn very quickly that in theory travel through a blackhole won't necessarily be dangerous at all. In fact science indicates the 'Yes' if you have a large enough blackhole and if it is spinning fast enough then travel through would be safe and that the main issue is what is on the other side of the singularity?
