Gravitationswellen

Plenary / Keynote & Panel
in englischer Sprache

Im September 2015 konnte erstmals eine Gravitationswelle gemessen werden. Die Fusion zweier schwarzer Löcher hatte riesige Energiemengen ins Weltall geschleudert. Gravitationswellen produzieren alle beschleunigten Massen. Die europäische GEO-Kollaboration entwickelt dafür neue Detektortechnologien, die völlig neue Möglichkeiten zur Erforschung des Weltalls bieten.

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 September 14th , 2015, everything is different: Gravitational waves were discovered! We have obtained a new sense and finally we can listen to the dark side of the universe. The first sounds that we heard were from unexpectedly heavy Black Holes. And nobody knows what other dark secrets are waiting for us out there.
More than 100 years ago, Einstein predicted the existence of Gravitational Waves as a consequence of his theory of General Relativity. They are minute distortions of space and time, created by rapidly accelerating large masses, and propagating at the speed of light. Until 2015, they have never been directly detected. These mysterious waves are emitted by coalescing binary stars, neutron stars, supernovae, Black Holes and the Big Bang itself, and they will permit us views of the dark ages of the universe. Their observation requires modern laser technology and measurements at the quantum mechanical detection limit. Several kilometer-size laser-interferometric gravitational wave detectors are currently operating on the earth, GEO600 near Hannover, the two LIGO observatories in the US, and the Virgo detectors in Italy; KAGRA in Japan is under construction. They will soon be joined by space detectors with armlengths of millions of kilometers. Such space missions has been under study now for over 2 decades. On June 20th of 2017, the European Space Agency ESA has selected LISA as the mission concept for the L3 mission in their Cosmic Vision program. All the technologies for LISA not testable on ground were recently demonstrated by the technology precursor mission LISA Pathfinder. The mission has been a fantastic success, surpassing all requirements for the full LISA mission by a wide margin.
