Description

The first detection of colliding black holes rocked the scientific world, establishing that gravitational waves are real and that we are able to measure them. More recently, scientists have achieved the first detection of colliding neutron stars, rocking the scientific world again and inaugurating the era of multi-messenger gravitational wave astronomy. Astronomers and astrophysicists as they discuss the implications of these colossal cosmic mergers, what they create, and how they’re changing our view of the universe.

PARTICIPANTS: Duncan Brown, Vicky Kalogera, Frans Pretorius, Jocelyn Read

MODERATOR: Mario Livio
