Dr Sue Bowler – The Promise of Gravitational Waves
June 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
It took more than 4 decades to build an observatory that could detect the ripples in spacetime that Albert Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity predicted.
In this talk Dr Sue Bowler (University of Leeds) discuss how they do it, why it took quite so long and what the new field of gravitational wave astronomy has to offer astrophysics.
