Area of Science: Astrophysics

Project Title: The Detection of Blackholes



The purpose of our project is to determine a method for the detection of blackholes in space. If proven accurate, this will give us more knowledge on how blackholes move and where they are located. We will write a C++ program to detect the presence of a blackhole by observing the changes in the constellations around a simulated blackhole. Our math model will include the use of similar triangles and an Einstein angle.
