Super-Massive Black Hole Pairs – Aug 21

The detection of gravitational waves from merging stellar-mass black holes has generated much excitement. We expect that similar events — but with black holes that are millions to billions of times heavier — can occasionally occur. Dr. Romani will describe observations of super-massive black hole "binaries." He will also discuss the search for such binaries that can eventually merge to produce the "loudest" signals in the universe — as the two super-massive black holes conclude their cosmic dance.

Our speaker, Roger Romani, is Professor of Physics at Stanford University.
