  • Gravitational waves and spacetime

    Acton, ACT

    The first detection of gravitational waves is tightly bound up with the first observation of colliding (and merging) black holes. This opens up the possibility of a new era of physics, astronomy and cosmology in which the enormous energies released from such collisions, and the gravitational waves they generate, can be used as a new space-based laboratory.
