A journey to the end of space and time: Esko Valtaoja meets Heino Falcke.

Location: Church in Ekenäs

Esko Jorma Johannes Valtaoja (born 1951) is a Finnish astronomer and writer. Valtaoja worked as a professor at the University of Turku, where he studied quasars. According to the Finnish Science Barometer, Esko Valtaoja was the best-known scientist in Finland in 2013. On 10 April 2019, award-winning astrophysicist Heino Falcke (born 1966) presented the first image ever taken of a black hole – a turning point in astronomy. In his international bestseller “Light in the Dark. Black Holes, the Universe and Us” (Klett-Cotta), which has also been translated into Finnish, he takes his readers on an extraordinary journey to the end of space and time. Esko Valtaoja and Heino Falcke reflect on the big questions that arise when we look up at the stars. A plea for curiosity, faith and humility.
