It is fascinating to try to map and understand the universe. But the universe is also a unique laboratory for extreme physics. In the lecture we will focus on the extremes of gravity: black holes and neutron stars and the new ways to study them, eg with gravitational waves, sometimes in combination with (space) telescopes. But also recent photos of the shadow of black holes are discussed. By using these new measurements we can learn a lot about the universe, but also about general relativity. Also for the future a number of spectacular new measuring instruments are planned both on Earth and in space, which will give us an even better picture.
Prof. dr. Gijs Nelemans played an important role in the interpretation of the first measurements of the gravitational wave in 2015. In 2017 he was appointed professor of gravitational wave Astrophysics and head of the department of astronomy at the Faculty of Science of the Radboud University, Nijmegen ( RUN).
