November Lecture 2017 – Joint IMechE & IET

“Gravitational Waves, LISA and LISA Pathfinder “

Thursday 2nd November 2017

Lecture Starts at 7.30 pm
Light Refreshments served from 7.00 pm

Speaker: Dr Christian Trenkel, Airbus UK

Location: Lecture Theatre ‘0’, Cambridge University Engineering Department, Trumpington Street, Cambridge CB2 1PZ.

Almost exactly 100 years after they were first predicted by Einstein, gravitational waves were finally observed for the first time on the ground, and just three months later LISA Pathfinder was launched to pave the way for future gravitational wave observations from space. In this talk, some of the motivation behind the century old quest to observe gravitational waves is reviewed, and it is shown that the case for LISA has never been stronger. Finally, the recent in-flight results obtained by LISA Pathfinder are presented and discussed in the context of LISA.
