Soapbox Science Event 2023
Dr. Elisa Maggio is a researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) in Potsdam, working on tests of general relativity. She will discuss black holes and how we can we observe these exotic objects in the universe.

What are black holes, and how can we observe these exotic objects in the universe? With gravitational waves, we can learn about the structure of black holes, which can be heavier than our Sun and confined in a region as big as the city of Berlin. Elisa will describe how we can listen to the sound of black holes and how we currently test for their existence with gravitational waves.
