Happy Friday everyone! What a crazy week it’s been again - airshows galore but with this weather who can complain?!
In other news, have you checked out @emmanigma_ yet?! She’s the next speaker at New Breed next week and she’s rather awesome! Do you often wonder about some of the big science questions, like how old is the universe? Where did it come from? What a black hole? If so you might want to come along and chat to Emma. She’s doing some incredible work and she’s brilliant at explaining complex theories and concepts to people like me who usually have no clue! It’ll be a super fun evening and we’re so lucky to have Emma with us so make sure you come and ask those questions you’ve always wanted answers to! Tickets are only £5 and are available from my Facebook page and website: www.new-breed.co.uk or follow the link in my bio ✨

#LIGOIndia extends a hearty congratulations to theoretical physicist, Bala Iyer for receiving an honorary doctorate from Central University of Karnataka "in recognition of his meritorious contributions to the field of science.” The Simons Visiting Professor at International Centre for Theoretical Sciences, Bangalore and the chairperson of the IndIGO Consortium of Indian gravitational-wave physicists has played a significant role in the calculation of expected gravitational-wave signals from inspiralling binaries of black holes and neutron stars — the kind of signals that were detected by LIGO's dual detectors and Virgo.
His contributions to gravitational-wave science are widely recognized and thus he is an elected fellow of the American Physical Society and the International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation.

Apart from having a stellar research career (most of it was spent in Raman Research Institute, Bangalore), Prof Iyer spearheaded the initial proposal for the LIGO India observatory.
Following the convocation event at Central University of Karnataka, Bala Iyer said that he is receiving this honour as a representative of the community of gravitational-wave scientists.

We make science look good, don't we! I really appreciate the warm welcome from the #LIGO team who are busy preparing the interferometer to find more #gravitationalwaves so citizen scientists like me at #gravityspy can help find new classes to train the machine to retire thousands of glitches picked up by the detector. The scientists in the photo with me clean the mirrors and calibrate the detector, and I help PhD students and my mentors with research related to #artificialintelligence, citizen science theory, #machinelearning, #psychology, and #computational studies. I'm taking statistics class in college these days, which counts towards my degree. Learning how to manipulate lists of numbers is sooooo much more interesting and fun than I thought it would be! Still a math major. If you would like to help scientists find more gravitational waves, come check out Gravityspy.org at Zooniverse.org and be a part of the solution. We would all love to see you all there! We could use more motivated citizen scientists who are interested in doing advanced work to volunteer at Gravity Spy to help us classify millions of glitches that still need to be analyzed. 😘

Virgo è un grande interferometro costruito da una collaborazione internazionale per rilevare onde gravitazionali provenienti dall'universo; le onde gravitazionali sono un effetto predetto dalla teoria della relatività generale di Einstein. Virgo è un interferometro di Michelson, con bracci lunghi 3 km, situato nel comune di Cascina (PI), in località Santo Stefano a Macerata. [fonte: Wikipedia]
