    Black holes may be capable of resonance

    The only two Physics majors at Lipscomb University presented at the annual Student Symposium on Thursday, April 13th.  This year, Jocelyn Howland and Søren Thompson walked through several different theories and equations that led them to their final conclusion- that spacetime may be capable of resonance. If that doesn’t make sense to you yet- hang on, we’ll get there. To make this final conclusion, the two Physics majors used thermal physics, general relativity, and quantum mechanics- all of which they had little or no experience with prior to their time working on this presentation.  Now, what is a black hole anyway? A black hole is created when a star collapses…
