From Quarks to Black Holes: let’s get INSPYRED!
Exploring the Universe with gravitational radiation: where we come from and where we’re going – V. Fafone (Univ. Tor Vergata, Rome)
The era of gravitational wave astrophysics started in 2015 and represented a unique breakthrough toward the investigation of the Universe from a completely new observational window, complementary to the traditional astronomy. We will review the scientific outcomes from the first three observing runs of the gravitational wave interferometers Virgo and LIGO and the perspectives of the field in the forthcoming years.
