Conférence donnée à l'IAP le 3 janvier 2012 par Alain Riazuelo, astrophysicien à l'IAP.

À quoi ressemble un trou noir ? Curieusement, les scientifiques ont mis beaucoup de temps avant de chercher une réponse à cette question, alors même que les trous noirs font partie des objets les plus extrêmes et les plus déroutants de l'Univers et que les moyens informatiques modernes permettent d'y apporter de nombreux éléments de réponse.

Hazel Pot Beetle--An Overview
This short video gives excellent real life, close up footage of a Hazel Pot Beetle. An orange and black insect that has the typical - if slightly squarish - 'beetle' shape. The thorax is black in males and red in females, and the wing covers are reddish-orange fringed with black. The whole beetle is very glossy.
