Description

Thought Exchange: Whispers From the Cosmos

Speaker: Dr. Katie Breivik, University of Toronto.

The recent discovery of gravitational waves marks the dawn of a new field of astronomy and provides new opportunities to study several elusive systems in the Cosmos. Compact binaries, made up of pairs of stellar remnants, are difficult to observe with traditional astronomical observations, but they are the most prolific source of gravitational waves. In this talk, I will give an overview of gravitational-wave astronomy and the exciting astrophysics we have uncovered from the 11 gravitational-wave detections to date. Drop-In Program.
