Dr. Ryan Chornock, Assistant Professor of Physics & Astronomy at Ohio University, was featured in an episode of Ohio Today radio headlined “Dark Star.”

In this episode of Ohio Today radio, Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy Ryan Chornock leads us on an exploration of supernovae – the universe’s most spectacular events – showing how what humans have regarded as a vast, unchanging landscape is, in actuality, anything but.

Join us as we travel from backyard stargazing to the depths of interstellar space, where Chornock has potentially discovered a major missing piece of evidence relating to stars, supernovae, and the birth of black holes.

Listen to Dark Star.
