IOP/OU Public Lecture Dr Ulrich Kolb "Gravitational wave astronomy reveals fatal end of a wild cosmic dance”

Dates
Tuesday, November 12, 2019 - 19:30 to 21:00
Location
Berrill Lecture Theatre, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes

Since the Nobel prize winning first detection of gravitational waves emitted by merging black holes in 2015, the list of confirmed gravitational wave events from compact binary mergers has been growing steadily. A complementing rapid-response campaign by telescope facilities around the globe is searching for electromagnetic counterparts of these gravitational wave sources. I will review the state of play and report on some of my experience as a participating partner during the initial phase of the search.

ALL WELCOME! Light refreshments after the talk when you can meet the speaker
