International Day of Women and Girls in Science
The Three Messengers of the Universe
Light, Particles, and Gravitational Waves
In the beginning it was light. But today we already have more than one window through which we can observe the Cosmos. Matter particles such as neutrinos or the cosmic ray family arrive from the sky and, more recently, gravitational waves bring us exotic messages from places where nothing else, neither matter nor light, can escape.
Bring your questions to this session where we’ll show you how scientists from different fields work together and use a whole variety of observatories and instruments to probe the unknown.
On this International Day of Women and Girls in Science, IAstro and the Laboratory of Instrumentation and Experimental Particle Physics (LIP) join efforts in a session in which Lara Sousa, from IAstro, and Sofia Andringa, from LIP, will present, and answer to questions, about different ways of contemplating the Universe.
