IOP Summer Sessions 2016 – Making Waves

Unfortunately due to a family emergency with the speaker, the Making Waves event has been cancelled.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. The IoP is looking into rescheduling the talk for another date and will keep us updated on this.



DATE: Wednesday 11 May, 6.30–8pm
VENUE: Canalside steps, Granary Square

Knowledge Quarter’s partner, the Institute of Physics, presents an evening of demystification of one of the newest discoveries in physics – gravitational waves.

Professor Martin Hendry from the University of Glasgow brings the latest sound of the universe to Kings Cross as he explains what gravitational waves are and what they can tell us about the cosmos.
Composer Arthur Jeffes will also play his musical interpretation of gravitational waves, produced from the chirps of data recorded as two black holes collided millions of years ago.

This event is part of the Institute of Physics Summer Sessions series, bringing leading researchers together with music and art to explore how physics affects our lives.

Drinks and snacks are available at the talk, and attendance is free, just make sure to register beforehand.
