WA AIP branch 2019 AGM and dinner
November 14, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
This year’s WA AIP AGM and dinner will have Emeritus Professor David Blair as its guest speaker.
David Blair is an Australian physicist and professor at the University of Western Australia and Director of the Australian International Gravitational Research Centre (AIGRC). Professor Blair works on methods for the detection of gravitational waves and developed the niobium bar gravitational wave detector (NIOBE). In the last three years gravitational wave astronomers have listened to many tens of binary black hole collisions, black holes devouring neutron stars, neutron star coalescence events and measured the speed of gravity to astonishing precision.
If you want to learn what the OzGrav Centre of Excellence and the LIGO-Virgo discovery teams have discovered and hope to discover in the future then come along. This event will sell out quickly so please purchase tickets for yourselves and your students right away to avoid disappointment.
