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]

What do we know about the dark side of the Universe and what will the future of gravitational-wave astronomy bring? [more]
For thousands of years we have been looking at the universe with our eyes. But most of the universe is dark and will never be observable with electromagnetic waves. Since 14 September 2015, everything is different! [more]

Public talk (in German) “Gravitationswellen - wenn stellare Schwarze Löcher verschmelzen”

Public talk
More than 100 years ago, Albert Einstein predicted that large, compact, and fast-moving masses, such as those that occur in stellar explosions, cause dents in space-time that propagate like waves. These gravitational waves produce tiny length changes over millions of light-years as small as a fraction of an atomic nucleus. Their analysis illuminates, among other things, the physical processes of distant mergers of massive, compact objects that remain hidden from conventional astronomical measurement methods. [more]
