About LIGO, Black Holes, and Our New View of the Universe

LIGO, Black Holes, and Our New View of the Universe

Presented by Assistant Professor Joey Shapiro Key

We live in the new era of multi-messenger astronomy, with the LIGO gravitational wave detectors partnering with telescopes around the world to study cosmic collisions of black holes and neutron stars. This new astronomy allows us to peer deeper into the cosmos and reach farther back into the history of our Universe than ever before.
