Torino – Aula Magna – Dipartimento di Fisica
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the first publication of Albert Einstein’s prediction of the existence of gravitational waves. With interest in this topic piqued by the centennial, and rumors swirling about whether the LIGO – VIRGO teams have detected these waves, the groups will discuss their ongoing efforts to observe and measure cosmic gravitational waves for scientific research.
Thursday, February 11 at 16:30 a status report on the effort to detect gravitational waves will be reported in a joint press conference from Washington D.C. and from Cascina (Pisa) from the LIGO and VIRGO Collaborations.
Due to the interest on this topic, we will attempt a live broadcast in Aula Magna – Physics Dpt -, starting at 16:30.
You are invited to attend.
