Sackler Lecture: Gravitational-Wave Discoveries Driving the Promise of Multi-Messenger 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 compact objects. I will highlight what current results imply and what we can look forward to in terms of advancing our understanding of the densest objects…

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…
