The Force of Creation

Lecture no. 23 from the course: Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime: Understanding Gravity

The Force of Creation

Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Use a black hole to test the laws of thermodynamics, taking a deeper look at the capacity of gravity to pull matter together and increase entropy at the same time. Probe Stephen Hawking’s most surprising discovery, and then learn that the same force that pulls the apple down and steers the stars in their courses is also nature’s ultimate source of order and complexity.
