March 10, 2016

Who: Alex Nielsen (Albert Einstein Institute, Hannover), Martin Sloth (CP3-Origins), and Mads Toudal Frandsen (CP3-Origins)
When: Wednesday, March 30, 2016 at 16:30
Where: O100

2016_GW_SXSThe discovery of gravity waves by the LIGO experiment is the latest in a wave of spectacular discoveries in physics over the last 10 years, including the Higgs particle. Hear about black holes and the discovery of gravity waves from the only Dane who participated in the discovery. Learn how Einstein predicted gravity waves, and hear what the future will bring of new great discovery regarding the laws and history of the universe.

This event is part of the Inspire-Educate-Innovate series, and is primarily aimed at high school students and teachers. The talks will be in English.
