Special Lectures by Nobel laureates "Gravitational waves –From their first detection to future observations–"

Information

Gravitational waves predicted by Einstein was first detected by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) in 2015. Professor Rainer Weiss (MIT), a member of LIGO, and Professor Takaaki Kajita (The University of Tokyo), a member of the Kamioka Gravitational wave detector (KAGRA), will share the wonder of GWs.
