Tutorial: Brian Cox on black holes

In the past few years, we’ve entered a new age of astronomy – now we can watch black holes collide, and see the aftermath of these collisions.

Astrophysics legend Brian Cox talks us through what happens during these cataclysmic collisions and what might just happen to the black holes when the Milky Way collides with Andromeda.

Use this film to help students understand the latest developments in Physics and what this might mean for science and society in the future. This would be particularly useful during Unit 4: Revolutions in modern physics.
