Wonderfest: Ask a Science Envoy: Black Holes and Making Memories

Wonderfest Science Envoys are early-career researchers with special communication skills and aspirations. Following short talks on provocative modern science topics, these two Science Envoys will answer questions with insight and enthusiasm:

  • UC Berkeley astronomer Fatima Abdurrahman debunks sci-fi movie tropes and explains exactly what a black hole is, why they're so hard to find, and how we can circumvent that difficulty to find them.
  • Stanford neuroscientist Tyler Bonnen explores how an experience becomes a memory. He'll provide a sketch of information processing in the brain - from perceptual encoding to conscious recollection.
