A short post discussing the possible existence of intermediate mass black holes and why we want to find them.
A post explaining the research area of my new PhD – gravitational wave emission from binary sources, their detection and the key insights they provide into the nature of gravity.
A post explaining the fuzzball, believed by string theorists to be the true quantum description of a black hole. The theory seeks to resolve the famous information paradox and eliminate the existence of troublesome singularities at the centre of black holes.
A continuation in the series on Black Holes, examining the Black Hole Stability Conjecture. Asking whether, when black holes are disturbed they return to their stable state after spewing out gravitational waves.
In 1915 Gravitational Waves were predicted by Einstein as a product of his theory of general relativity and in 2015, on the theory’s 100th anniversary, their existence was verified. Find out what all the fuss about and how the long awaited detection came about.
Imagine doing something every single day of your life, something powerful and fundamental to the lives of everyone around you. Something so valuable the world simply could not exist without […]
