Brightlands Science Lecture by Prof. Stefan Hild

Einstein Telescope - prospects of building a billion-Euro-class research Infrastructure in Limburg? Unravvelling the mysteries of the dark side of the universe with the Einstein Telescope.

The discoveries of gravitational waves from binary black holes and neutron stars have provided us with a stunning glimpse of an entirely new way to explore our universe. The planned Einstein Telescope, which may be hosted in South Limburg, will allow us to fully open up the new window of gravitational wave astronomy. During this lecture, Professor Hild will show us how.
