Justin Vandenbroucke, University of Wisconsin, "The multi-messenger astrophysics revolution enabled by neutrinos, gravitational waves, and gamma rays"
KICP colloquium: May 22 @ 3:30 PM, ERC 161
In the past few years, the idea of studying high-energy astrophysics with cosmic messengers beyond those of the electromagnetic spectrum has become a reality. The IceCube Neutrino Observatory has discovered and characterized a flux of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos, and LIGO/Virgo have directly detected gravitational waves.
