At the limits of astrophysics

Much of modern astronomy sounds a lot like science fiction - gravitational ripples in the fabric of spacetime, supermassive black holes, habitable exoplanets…are there any limits to what is out there? In this lecture, astrophysicist Katy Clough will discuss some of the more exotic possibilities for astrophysical objects, including wormholes and warp drives. She will explain how these objects fit within our current understanding of physics, and what we expect the limits to be.
