Listening to colliding black holes at the edge of the Universe

The LIGO and Virgo detectors are able to “hear” in gravitational-waves the collisions of neutron stars and black holes – confirming Einstein’s predictions from a century ago. The ability to listen to gravitational waves opens up an entirely new and exciting window on the Universe and “rewrites what we know about our universe” according to a New York Times article published earlier this month.  This discussion features Daniel Holz and Vicky Kalogera,  and it is moderated by Cyndi Conn.
