Physics Colloquium

"Detection of Gravitational Waves and the First Observation of a Binary Black Hole Merger"

Presented by Imre Bartos, Columbia University

Tuesday, March 1, 2016, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

On September 14th 2015 the gravitational wave signature of a binary black hole merger was detected by the LIGO observatories. This marks the beginning of a completely new era of modern physics, the dawn of gravitational-wave astrophysics. We will discuss the discovery, its impact and its consequences.
