Join Dr. Charles Holmes, Ph.D., for a brief tour of some of these strange objects, including: black holes, pulsars, quasars, the big bang, the cosmic microwave background and the recently-observed gravitational waves.
Dr. Holmes will answer these questions and tell the story of gravity from Isaac Newton to Einstein, forward to the headlining LIGO observatories that twice detected colliding black holes last year.
For eleven years until his retirement in 2008, Dr. Holmes worked at NASA HQ providing oversight and program guidance to the NASA’s Heliophysics Great Observatory, a suite of operating science missions observing the sun, the interplanetary solar wind and their interactions with the Earth and planets. In 2008, Dr. Holmes received NASA’s Exceptional Service Medal.
