BritGrav 15 Public Lecture

The detection of gravitational-wave signals is still one of the most challenging areas of experimental physics. And the reward for success will be considerable in that the information carried by these signals will give us new insight into the hearts of some of the most violent events in the Cosmos—from the formation of black holes to aspects of the evolution of the Universe. A global network of gravitational-wave detectors is now reaching the final stages of construction, with first data expected in 2015. The nature of gravitational waves, how the detectors work, and what the data from the detectors can tell us about the Universe we inhabit, will be discussed.

After the lecture, refreshments will be provided, and members of our research team will be available to answer questions. Tickets are free, but we ask everyone to book in advance.
