The English version follows

Joignez-vous à nous pour notre prochain colloque le 31 mars à 7pm, avec la professeure Julie Hlavacek-Larrondo de l’Université de Montréal pour en apprendre sur les plus gros trous noirs de l’Univers!

Ne laissez pas le nom vous tromper: les trous noirs ne sont pas de l'espace vide; ce sont les objets les plus puissants et les plus extrêmes de l'Univers, si puissants que rien ne peut leur échapper, même la lumière. Remplis d’une quantité d'énergie exceptionnelle, ils peuvent facilement et rapidement détruire des galaxies entières. Le travail de Prof. Julie Hlavacek-Larrondo se concentre sur les trous noirs les plus massifs de l'Univers - les titans parmi les géants. Ces monstres sont les objets les plus puissants de l'Univers et sont tout sauf silencieux. Au cours de cette conférence, elle vous présentera les découvertes les plus récentes sur ces objets, montrant à quel point l'Univers peut être extrême (mais aussi mystérieux).

Venez voir ce fascinant colloque sur Youtube le 31 mars à 7pm EST! Vous allez certainement apprendre de nouvelles choses et aurez la possibilité de poser des questions dans les commentaires Youtube! Les liens et les informations supplémentaires se trouvent sur la page de l’événement: FB event.

**ce colloque sera en français, avec l'option de poser des questions en français ou en anglais.**

Don’t be fooled by the name, black holes are not just empty space; they’re the most powerful and extreme objects in the universe! In fact, they’re so powerful that nothing, not even light, can escape them. Filled with an incredible energy, they can destroy entire galaxies quickly and easily. Prof. Julie Hlavacek-Larrondo’s work focuses on the largest black holes in the universe, the titans among giants. These monsters are the most powerful and are all but silent. Throughout this lecture, she will inform you of the most recent discoveries about these objects, showing how extreme (and mysterious) the universe can be!

Come see this fascinating talk on Youtube on March 31st at 7pm EST! You’ll certainly learn something new and be able to ask questions in the Youtube chat! Links and more info can be found in the event page: FB event.

**This public lecture will be given in French, with the option to ask questions in French or English.**
