Sackler Lecture: The Promise and Challenges of Gravitational-Wave Astronomy’

Sackler Speaker: Vicky Kalogera (Northwestern University)

Abstract: The LIGO detectors have opened for us a new way of studying compact objects in the time domain with direct detections of gravitational-wave bursts from binary mergers of black holes.I will highlight what current results imply and what we can look forward to in terms of advancing our understanding of compact objects and t…

Sackler Lecture: ‘Einstein’s Waves: New Cosmic Sounds’

Sackler Speaker: Vicky Kalogera (Northwestern University)

Abstract: One century following Einstein’s prediction of spacetime disturbances and gravitational waves, the laser-enabled special detectors LIGO achieved the most accurate measurement ever made by humans across science and engineering and revealed to us the gravitational-wave signals produced by the most powerful collisions of black…
