Physics of the World Beyond:Frontiers in Astrophysics Online Lecture Series- The Shape of Black Holes
What do black holes tell us about the Universe? How can we see them, if not even light can escape black holes? After a hundred years of studying black holes, how much do we know now about the most elusive objects in the Universe? In 2015, scientists discovered ripples in the fabric of spacetime from the violent collision of two black holes, now known as gravitational waves. These gravitational waves, detected by kilometre-scale detectors around the world, give a rare insight into black holes and the Universe. In this lecture, we will show how gravitational waves are used to “see” black holes and study their enigmatic properties.
