The AWA invites you to "Black Holes, Gravitational Waves and the Fastest
Explosions in the Universe," an Astronomy lecture with speaker Dr Jeff
Cooke. Proceeds from this event will be donated to the RCH on
behalf of the AWA. All welcome!
There have been several major announcements in astronomy recently,
including a direct image of a black hole, black holes and neutron stars
merging to generate gravitational waves, and other phenomena, including
fast radio bursts. If you want to know more about these exotic
events, Dr Jeff Cooke will discuss the details behind them and the role of
Australians in their discovery.
