Einstein puzzles: Black Holes and Gravitational Waves
Marco Bruni
Public Talk - Outreach
South Downs Astronomical Society
2016-10-19
In this talk I introduce the fundamental ideas that are at the base of Einstein theory of General Relativity, the modern gravity theory that replaces Newtonian gravitation. I illustrate how space and time, once separated, are unified into a new concept, that of spacetime, and how “matter tells space how to curve” and how “space tell matter how to move”. Given the importance of the recent first detection of gravitational waves, in September 2015, emitted by the merging of two black holes, I briefly explain how black holes are formed when a giant star dies, and how two black holes orbiting each other can merge into one. Illustrating the effects of gravitational waves on matter, I illustrate how they can be detected, on Earth and in space. (Marco Bruni)

Quantum black holes (Agujeros negros cuánticos)
Gonzalo J. Olmo
Public talk (in Spanish)
Valencia
2016-10-27
Talk aimed at explaining what black holes are, how they can form, and how their existence challenges our knowledge of physical laws. The black hole information paradox is presented and different approaches to the problem discussed. Recent progress in the study of Hawking radiation using acoustic black holes is also presented.
