Café Scientifique Henley Presents Colliding Black Holes and Neutron Stars: Detecting Gravitational Waves

Wed 17 November
7.30pm
Zoom online

Gravitational waves are ripples in the fabric of spacetime which travel at the speed of light. Merging black holes and neutron stars are some of the best sources of detectable gravitational waves here on Earth. To date over fifty gravitational-wave signals have been detected. These observations are transforming our understanding of our universe.

Speaker: Laura Nuttall
UKRI Future Leaders Fellow and a Reader of Astrophysics at the University of Portsmouth.
She has been researching gravitational waves in the LIGO Scientific Collaboration for over a decade.
