Probing the warped side of the Universe: A future Astronomy for Western Australia Other events...
Over the next decade or so, extremely large, ground-based telescopes will be built to probe the furthest reaches of the universe - back to the earliest times in its evolution, and through its most energetic events. These instruments will span the optical and radio bands of the electromagnetic spectrum and the audio band of the gravitational wave spectrum. WA is on the verge of hosting two of these three telescopes the Square Kilometre Array radio telescope and the LIGO-Australia gravitational wave telescope. In this talk we will explain how a gravitational wave telescope works and illuminate the exciting physics, astrophysics and cosmology that can be done with a global array of such telescopes.

Professor McClelland, a former graduate of the University of Western Australia, is currently Head of the Department of Quantum Science and Director of the Centre for Gravitational Physics at The Australian National University.

Professor Blair is Director of the Australian International Gravitational Research Centre at the University of Western Australia.
