Speaker: Benjamin Knispel

November der Wissenschaft 2016: „Einsteins Relativitätstheorie im Universum und im Alltag“

Series of talks
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]

November der Wissenschaft 2016: „Reise ans Ende des Universums“

Series of talks
Visit star crests, supernova explosions, and massive galaxies. Travel with Benjamin Knispel from our earthly home into the depths of space. Passing by stellar crests, exploding suns, and supermassive black holes in galaxy centers, you will explore the universe and the current state of knowledge. [more]

More than 100 years ago Albert Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves - the sound of the universe. On September 14, 2015, they were detected for the first time and already in 2017 they were awarded the Nobel Prize. But what are gravitational waves and what does the universe tell us? [more]

Gravitationswellenastronomie

Public talk
In the fall of 2015, a new age of astronomy began. Since then, mankind has been observing the universe in a completely new way. Gravitational waves let us, in a certain sense, hear the dark, invisible side of the universe. [more]
In September 2015, gravitational waves from the collision of two black holes were observed directly for the first time. Since then, almost 100 more similar merger signals have followed, and many more are expected in the coming years. But what other discoveries might gravitational-wave detectors make in the depths of the universe, and how does this new kind of astronomy differ from the past? This talk offers a glimpse into the near and distant future of gravitational wave astronomy. (The talk will be in German) [more]
