The Physics department's annual Walter O'Connell Memorial Lecture takes place on Thursday, May 17th at 4:00 pm in Holmes Hall room 6. We have a terrific guest speaker lined up! 

A portrait of Dr. Mansi KasliwalCaltech astrophysicist Dr. Mansi Kasliwal will give a talk titled 'Illuminating Gravitational Waves'. Dr. Kasliwal led a team that last summer made the first ever observation of colliding neutron stars! The collision of the neutron stars had shortly before been 'seen' by the gravitational waves they emitted using the LIGO detector. 

Come hear ‘Time Domain Astronomer’ Dr. Kasliwal tell us about merging neutron stars, the discovery of an electromagnetic counterpart to the gravitational waves they emit, and where to find more gold than you could ever imagine!

Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
