The Discovery Of Gravitational Waves

Tue Feb 13 8 PM until 10:30 PM , The Red Victorian

Organized by delphine ly

Gravitational waves are ripples in spacetime that travel at the speed of light. Exactly 100 years after being predicted by Einstein, they have finally been found. Adam will tell us why this is such a big deal, 2 days after the Nobel Prize ceremony celebrating the discovery.

This story starts a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, where two star-crossed black holes spiral into each other’s arms, the violence of their embrace briefly outshining the entire universe.

Join us for an evening of learning followed by a lively discussion! Doors at 8pm, talk begins at 8.30pm on the dot.
Donation-based! Suggested donation $5
