The Dawn of Gravitational Wave Astronomy

Thursday, April 6 at 7 pm at USSRC Education Training Facility
Dr. Tyson Littenberg, NASA MSFC, Research Astrophysicist

In 2015 the Laser Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory (LIGO) made the breakthrough discovery of merging black holes through the detection of gravitational waves. This talk will tell the story of the detection, what new things it has taught us about the universe, and what the new field of gravitational wave astronomy has in store. Links of Interests
