Public talk (in German) “Einsteins Gravitationswellen – Wir können das dunkle Universum hören!”
Opening lecture for the sixth “November der Wissenschaft” in Hannover.

For thousands of years we have been looking at the Universe with our eyes. But more than 99% of the Universe are dark and will never be observed with electromagnetic waves. Since the 14th of September 2015 everything has changed: gravitational waves were discovered! We now have a new sense for the Universe and can finally hear its dark side. Since then we have listened to several mergers of binary black holes and that of a double neutron star. And nobody knows which other dark secrets wait for us out there.
