The Future of Gravitational-Wave Astronomy (Remote)

6-7 p.m. ET

In September 2015, 100 years after Einstein published his General Theory of Relativity, the LIGO collaboration announced the first every observation of gravitational waves emanating from the merger of two black holes over 1 billion light years away, opening up a new window on the universe. LIGO has been upgraded and continues to observer mergers of black holes and neutron stars, but the near future will see new gravitational wave detectors on Earth and in space. Dr. Neil Cornish of Montana State University is a leader in this effort, and one of the proposers of the Big Bang Observer, an exciting future space-based observatory.
