Feb 29 at 16.30 UTC: hangout on the discovery of gravitational waves
On February 11th, 2016 was announced the discovery of gravitational waves by the LIGO and Virgo collaborations. We organize the Gravitational Wave Fiesta in Paris for this historical occasion. In order to allow everyone to participate, we hold a special hangout on February 29 at 16:30 GMT.
Ask your questions!
You will have the opportunity to ask your questions about this exceptional discovery.
If you are not among our 80 lucky guests who will be present in Paris for the Fiesta, we encourage you to ask your questions and we will select the most popular ones to ask our guests during the Hangout.
There are three ways you can do this:
- You will be able to send questions and comments before and during the event by submitting them in the Google Hangout Q&A chat window (if you have a Google account).
- You can send us questions to our Twitter account @Gravity_Paris, using the hashtag #FLGravity.
- If you are registered to the first session of the Gravity! course on Futurelearn, you can leave your questions or comments in advance on the discussion of step 5.12 of the course .
What happens if I can’t watch the live Hangout?
Don’t worry! A recording of the discussion will be made available after the live event finishes. You will be able to access the recorded video after the event right below.
Will loading the Hangout mean I appear on camera?
No, you will just watch the live stream like any other video (though Google users can submit comments via the interface).
Is a Google account required to view the Hangout?
No, you can watch the Hangout without logging in to Google.
