Gravitational waves

Elisabeth-Herz-Kremenak-Saal
Plenary / Keynote & Panel
english language

In 2015, for the first time researchers were able to measure a gravitational wave. The fusion of two black holes had hurled huge amounts of energy into space. All accelerated masses produce gravitational waves. The European GEO Collaboration will develop new detector technologies to further track these waves, creating completely new possibilities for space exploration.
