As part of a series of electronic professional development experiences for educators, the NASA Explorer Schools and Learning Environments and Research Network, or LEARN, projects are hosting a 60-minute live professional development Web seminar for educators on Oct. 19, 2011, at 8 p.m. EDT. Misconceptions about black holes will be addressed, as you get background information about the structure and behavior of one of our universe’s most mysterious and spectacular bodies. You will see how to derive the equations used in the Black Hole Math problem set for your students to better understand the physics of black holes.
