First Sight: Black Holes and the Epic Effort to Detect Gravitational Radiation
For the past 50 years physicists have been trying, without success, to build a device that allows us to detect gravitational waves. But rather than looking for the minuscule gravitational waves produced by everyday occurrences, we have to focus on truly massive objects such as black holes and neutron starts. But what do we hope to learn? How hard is it, and why does it matter?
Lionel will discuss what we hope to learn from detecting gravitational waves. He will describe the breadth of current detection efforts.
