When two black holes a billion light-years away collide and merge, the disruption they cause in spacetime is so large that we feel it here, on Earth. Black holes, classical and quantum, hold the key to some of the deepest mysteries of our Universe. Over dinner and drinks, KITP Postdoctoral Scholar Isabel Garcia Garcia will share some of what we have learned about black holes, and how they might help us in our journey towards finding the underlying theory of nature. Please note, seating is first-come, first-serve.
