IOP Tyndall Lecture 2024

Tyndall Lecture 2024

This lecture, sponsored by the Institute of Physics, is aimed at senior secondary school students with an interest in science, physics and astronomy and will be relevant to several learning outcomes for Junior Cycle Earth and Space.

In this talk, Martin Hendry, Professor of Gravitational Astrophysics and Cosmology at the University of Glasgow will bring attendees on an exciting exploration of Gravitational Waves. 

Predicted by Albert Einstein more than 100 years ago, gravitational waves are ripples in the fabric of space and time produced by some of the most extreme events in the cosmos: exploding stars, colliding black holes, even the Big Bang itself. Join University of Glasgow “black hole hunter” Professor Martin Hendry for a whistle-stop tour of the exciting new field of gravitational-wave astrophysics: the ground-breaking discoveries that Martin and his colleagues are making, the remarkable engineering and technology that has enabled them, and how these discoveries are helping us to unlock the mysteries of Einstein's universe.

Location: Kirwan Theatre, Arts/Science Building, University of Galway
