'Class Acts' Online Talk Series by Dr. Shiu Sing Tong on "What Do Gravitational Waves Tell Us?"

31 Mar, 2020

It was not until in 2015, 100 years after Einstein published the General Theory of Relativity, that physicists directly detected gravitational waves which are predicted by the Theory, for the very first time. In the talk, Dr. Tong introduced how the gravitational waves could be produced and detected, how the signal of gravitational waves could change human understanding of the universe, and verify the General Theory of Relativity. He also responded to online questions from the participants in the Q&A session.
