Syracuse University hosted a live broadcast of the NSF press conference about the detection of gravitational waves and held a panel discussion in Goldstein Auditorium at the Schine Student Center Thursday. “The discovery of these binary black holes crashing into each other is really just the beginning of a whole new field of gravitational wave discovery,” says Duncan Brown, the Charles Brightman Endowed Professor of Physics. “It’s going to open up many opportunities for new research from Astronuclear physics, to strong field gravity … all these exciting areas that capture the imagination of students. We are just at the beginning here.” Read more at Syracuse University News.
