The (Gravitational) Sound of the Universe

Dr Davide Gerosa, Institute of Gravitational Waves Astronomy, University of Birmingham

Most of what we know about the Universe (planets, stars, galaxies...) came to us through light. But it's gravity, not light, that keeps the Universe together. Straddling the boundaries between astronomy and relativity, gravitational waves are the fundamental messenger of gravity and provide a new way of exploring the cosmos. Why should we only look at the Universe when we can also hear it? 

This lecture is suitable for interested general public, IOP members, A Level & GCSE students.
