This month, graduate students Soud Al Kharusi and Nick Vieira will be talking about Multi-Messenger Astrophysics!

Over the last century, the ways we observe the Universe have gone from using visible-light telescopes, to observations across the radio, microwave, X-ray and gamma ray bands of the electromagnetic spectrum.

In the last couple of decades, we have detected ripples in spacetime itself from merging black holes, neutrinos from exploding stars and our own Sun, and cosmic rays from every direction in the Universe.

Come join us for overview talks of the cosmic messengers, their interplay, and how we can use them to learn more about the Universe we live in.
