Science2Go | Gravitational Waves and Electromagnetic Waves from a Compact binary Merger

Public talk
Gravitational waves are ripples of space-time predicted by Albert Einstein almost 100 years ago. In 2015, the first direct detection of the gravitational waves was achieved. The source was a merger of two black holes. In 2017, the first direct detection of gravitational waves and electromagnetic waves was achieved. The source was a merger of two neutron stars. In this talk, I would like to present what these scientific achievements brought us and what the prospect is. [more]

International Day of Women and Girls in Science

Public Event
  • Date: Feb 11, 2022
  • Location: online
The 11th of February marks the United Nations' International Day of Women and Girls in Science. The Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics and the Institute for Gravitational Physics at Leibniz University Hannover celebrate the event by highlighting female researchers and their work at the institutes.

Public talk “Gravitationswellen – ein neues Fenster ins Universum” (in German)

Public talk
Since the first direct detection of gravitational waves in 2015, our knowledge of the universe has been enriched by a completely new window of observation – we can now not only observe the universe by means of electromagnetic telescopes and neutrino detectors, but also “eavesdrop” on it with interferometric gravitational-wave detectors.

Discussion: Einstein and the Quantum: Entanglement and Emergence

Public Event
With his General Theory of Relativity, Einstein illuminated the grand expanse of the cosmos, but he was also instrumental in developing quantum mechanics for describing the microworld. In Einstein’s day, these advances were considered unrelated but recent insights suggest that they may be secretly connected–significantly advancing our understanding of quantum threads that may stitch the fabric of spacetime. Leonard Susskind, Ana Alonso-Serrano and Mark Van Raamsdonk join Brian Greene to examine this newfound link and explore its implications for uniting the laws of the large and those of the small.
