As a part of the online conference "Teleparallel Gravity Workshop in Tartu 2020" there will be a public popular level lecture on
Tuesday 16 June 2020 at 6:00 p.m. (GMT+3:00) where
Professor Emmanuel Saridakis (National Observatory of Athens, National Technical University of Athens, University of Science and Technology Hefei) will speak on the topic
"Black holes and gravitational waves: a new window to look at the universe"
The last 400 years people are using telescopes and light in order to investigate the universe. But the last 4 years a scientific revolution has happened: The discovery of gravitational waves that are produced through the collision of black holes offers a novel tool that opens a completely new window to look at the universe. What are the black holes? What is gravity and general relativity? What are the gravitational waves? How can we use them in order to obtain information about our universe? In this talk we will address all these questions!
