Q&A with Greg: Black Holes, Consciousness, Greg’s Research, and More!

In this episode of What the Physics?! we answer questions from our viewers. This session tackles questions like:

1. What happens when two black holes collide?
2. Why do certain particles only become detectable at the high energies inside particle colliders?
3. What’s it like to do research in theoretical physics?

If you have questions you’d like answered, comment below or tweet @WTPhysics.
