For the last 15 years, the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves (NANOGrav) Collaboration has been using radio telescopes to time an array of ultra-precise millisecond pulsars and search for correlated delays caused by low-frequency gravitational waves. Such gravitational waves could be produced by orbiting pairs of supermassive black holes throughout the Universe. Please join us on June 29th at 1pm EDT for the announcement of some big news regarding NANOGrav’s search for low-frequency gravitational waves.
The announcement will be live-streamed, and a live-viewing event will be hosted in NPB 2205.
NANOGrav is an NSF-funded Physics Frontiers Center with more than 190 members at over 70 partner institutions, including the University of Florida. At UF, participants include Associate Professor Laura Blecha and graduate student Analis Evans, both members of the Physics Department.
We look forward to seeing you at this event on June 29!
