NOTE: You can attend this workshop even if you didn't participate in Black Holes I

The overwhelming interest in Black Holes has motivated the creation of this workshop. It's a continuation of our exploration of the mysteries behind the cosmic behemoths. While the previous workshop introduced Black Holes through the creation process, we will now study deep into their nature and structure. This workshop will complete the study of the birth and death of a black hole with some insights into their behavior.

Workshop Objective:

  • Explore astrophysics further and study the science behind the life and death of Black Holes.
  • Apply concepts from Electromagnetism and Quantum Physics to understand how Black Holes behave.
  • Explore concepts like Schwarzschild radius, Hawking radiation, etc.


  • Astrophysics Quiz
  • Structure of  Black Hole - Worksheet
  • Scope of Physics - Worksheet
  • Quantum Mechanics - Worksheet
