Festival Talk: We Can Hear the Universe! with Prof. Imre Bartos
With the revolutionary discovery and proof of Albert Einstein’s gravitational waves earlier this year, our planned exploration of Gravity 350 gained additional inspiration to draw a great arch from Newton to Einstein. Prof. Imre Bartos of Columbia University is a member of the team of scientists to make this exciting discovery. Join him for a talk on why scientists have for the first time exclaimed, “we can hear the universe!”
