Seit ewigen Zeiten haben wir das Universum nur sehen und nicht hören können. Das ist schade, denn über 99% des Universums sind dunkel und werden wohl nie mit Licht oder irgendeiner Art von elektromagnetischen Wellen beobachtbar sein. Seit dem 14. September 2015 ist alles anders: Die erste direkte Beobachtung der von zwei verschmelzenden Schwarzen Löchern abgestrahlten Gravitationswellen eröffnet das Zeitalter der Gravitationswellenastronomie. Wir haben ein neues Sinnesorgan bekommen und werden ab jetzt das Universum hören können. [more]

Panel discussion: A Celebration of Gravitational Waves

Panel discussion
Prof. Buonanno at a panel discussion about the detection of gravitational waves honoring the University of Maryland pioneers and the dawn of gravitational wave astronomy. [more]
Gravitational waves were predicted by Albert Einstein one hundred years ago, but in spite of many attempts during the past fifty years, had never been directly observed. This talk follows announcements earlier this year by the LIGO and Virgo Scientific Collaborations, based on data from the first four-month observing run the advanced LIGO gravitational wave detectors (aLIGO). In two instances, on 14.9.2015 and on 26.12.2015, we have directly detected the gravitational waves emitted by the final orbits and merger of massive black hole binary systems. I describe the main results and the basic physics of these systems, as well as some of the "behind the scenes" details of the discovery and subsequent analysis. As the aLIGO detectors improve during the coming few years, the prospects for further exciting discoveries are outstanding. [more]
How does Einstein's theory determine influence in the universe and our lives? Time dilation, black holes and gravitational waves are consequences of Einstein's theory of relativity. Dr. Benjamin Knispel talks about where these and other relativistic effects occur in the universe, but also how they affect us in our daily lives. [more]
