Kavli Fulldome Lecture Series

The most recent Kavli lecture held on Friday, October 28, 2016 featured, "The Warped Universe: The 100 Year Quest to Detect Gravitational Waves" a presentation by Dr. Nergis Mavalvala, MIT. Some of the most violent events in the universe spectacularly warp space-time, emitting gravitational waves. Dr. Mavalvala described the 100 year search for these tiny ripples in space-time and what they can tell us about cosmic events that may be shrouded in darkness and date as far back in time as the earliest moments after the Big Bang.

The Kavli Lecture Series offers you the chance to hear from experts around the world as we stream their presentations live in our fulldome theater. The presentations are made possible through a partnership with the Adler Planetarium and the Kavli Foundation.
