Finding the First Intermediate-Mass Black Hole Ever Seen - Christopher Berry, NW Unv. - Astronomy News with The Cosmic Companion Sept. 15, 2020 Video and Podcast

Using gravitational waves to spot the first intermediate-mass black holes ever seen by astronomers.

Hello everyone!

This week on Astronomy News with The Cosmic Companion, we welcome Dr. Christopher Berry to the show. He is an astrophysicist who recently helped discover the first intermediate-mass black hole ever seen by astronomers.

We will also look at an ancient galaxy that looks normal, and talk about why that's so unusual. We learn of an active environment around the asteroid Bennu, and we see how our ideas of dark matter may change, due to an unexpected bending of light.
