Dojo Workshop - Gravitational Wave Astronomy with a Precision Pulsar Timing Array Detector #728
Hey #Astronomy enthusiasts! 🚀 Mark your calendars for our upcoming workshop on Gravitational Wave Astronomy with a Precision Pulsar Timing Array Detector, presented by Michael Lam (Astronomer, Research Scientist at SETI Institute, Research Assistant Professor at Rochester Institute of Technology). Don't miss out on learning and getting inspired!
⏰ Time: Wednesday Sep 13th 9 AM ET

✨ Description: NANOGrav collaboration detects low-frequency gravitational waves using radio pulsars distributed across the galaxy. They measure pulse arrival times, accounting for various factors, and report correlated gravitational-wave signals. In this workshop, their recent results will be highlighted, including implications for supermassive black hole binary dynamics in merging galaxies and searches for these binaries, along with exploring gravitational wave signals from new physics.
💡 If you have any questions regarding this topic or any other astronomy-related questions, please feel free to share them in the comment and we will make sure to bring them up during the Q&A session with Michael.
