Jewish Book Week, 7 March, 8.30pm
January 24, 2018
On 14 September 2015, gravitational waves were first detected on Earth. The source – two merging black holes – briefly pumped out 50 times more power than all the stars in the Universe together. I write about this – and much more – in my latest book, The Ascent of Gravity.
Tonight, I talked about gravitational waves: The voice of space. Turned out to be a very enjoyable event: Enthusiastic audience, lovely festival people and generally a very good atmosphere. The first person who came up to me after I finished my talk asked: “Are these Jewish gravitational waves?”!
