Dr. Rudy Schild

After a 40 year career at Harvard Center for Astrophysics, Dr. Schild is still continuing research activities in gravitational lensing, black hole (MECO) physics, and matter structuring of the universe. Early results from his career relate to the comparison of temperature and luminosity of hot early type stars and have become very popular in recent times, as these stars are recognized as progenitors of supernovae. His mid-career work was focused on the first measured time-delay of gravitationally lensed quasar images. The most recent research activities involved comparison of gravitational microlensing, brightness fluctuations with black hole models to study quasar inner structure.

He also hosts a show with Joe Cerletti called the Consciousness Enigma, which focuses mostly discussions on human consciousness, astrophysics, UFO phenomenon, and the works of his late friend and colleague, Dr. John Mack of Harvard.
