The Explorers Club Lecture Series with Jason Kendall: "Blackholes and Gravitational Waves"

Saturday, Feb 1 6:00p to 9:00p
Explorers Club New York, NY

Astronomy has always opened new doors to discovery when a new observing technology is developed. Now in 2015, we will be able to probe the final milliseconds of colliding black holes, as space-time warps and twists under their violent death-dance. As a neutron star rotates, tiny changes in its crust cause starquakes that would make a nuclear bomb look like a firefly. The first detection will open up a new field of discovery, as we listen for the sounds of the ringing universe.
