When: 06/28/2019, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
As part of the “Lunch and Learn” series, the Westhampton Free Library will host “Images of the Edge of Spacetime” with Dom Pesce on Friday, June 28, at 12 PM.
Pesce, an alumnus of Westhampton Beach High School and former Westhampton Free Library employee, is an astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and is a member of the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration, which obtained the first image of a black hole in April.
He will discuss the quest to assemble the Event Horizon Telescope, an Earth-sized network of dishes with resolution several thousand times stronger than the Hubble Space Telescope, and how it was used to take the first picture of a black hole.
The Westhampton Free Library will sponsor Mondays on Main this summer, which will run from July 1 through August 26 from 6 to 9 PM.
Mondays on Main will feature family-friendly activities, food, drinks, sidewalk sales, and movies on the Great Lawn.
