Throughout casual conversation many of us might make the mistake of referencing a black hole as a segment of empty space. In fact, it is a great amount of matter packed into a very small area.

Have you ever wondered how common black holes are throughout the galaxy? How exactly does a black hole form? And perhaps most importantly, how can scientists detect black holes? No need to continue wondering, as Dr Marvin Druger will answer that and more this week on Science on the Radio.

When it comes to space many of us have a base knowledge about our solar system and the galaxy. But whether it's The Milky Way, blackholes or the chemical makeup of various planets, how much do we really know? Luckily, this week on Science on the Radio, Dr. Marvin Druger will give us additional information to better understand the universe around us and appreciate our existence.

All of that and of course a well-timed joke or two, this week on Science on the Radio. You can hear Science on the Radio Wednesday evenings at 8:35pm on WAER.
