Kip Thorne & Thomas Hertog about the Einstein Telescope

The new underground Einstein telescope will be Europe's most advanced observatory for gravitational waves. Why do we need such a telescope? Why is the detection of those gravitational waves so essential to physics? And which country will get it? The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany are exploring the options to host this world-class observatory together.


This talk will be immediately followed by the world premiere of The Faraway, Nearby. Tickets can only be purchased for both events at the same time (one ticket is sufficient for both the film and the talk beforehand)
