Ofek Birnholtz (Bar-Ilan University) | Gravitational Wave Astrophysics – The LVK Catalog GWTC-3 |
Gravitational Waves were originally predicted in the 1910’s by Einstein, and measured directly for the first time in 2015. In the 6 years since, they have become a household acquaintance and a cornerstone of astrophysical observations and discoveries. I will present their background, history, and how they have begun to shape current day astrophysics, including the recent O3b results and the prospects for the future.
