Scientists try to unravel the birth, growth and power of black holes, some of the most forceful yet difficult-to-detect objects in our Universe. See more
Michela Mapelli gives a Heidelberg Joint Astronomy Colloquium about “The riddle of binary black hole formation”. Here you can find the recording of the talk.
Michela Mapelli is invited by the Early Career Scientists of the LISA and the LIGO-Virgo collaboration to give a talk on “Managing a project, coordinating
DEMOBLACK partecipa alla Notte dei Ricercatori con Filippo Santoliquido e Sara Rastello.
On 2020 September 2, the LIGO Virgo collaboration has published the discovery of GW190521, the most massive binary black hole merger observed with gravitational waves
The metallicity of the progenitor star plays a crucial role in shaping the mass of a black hole. Our new study shows that this holds
Next-generation ground-based gravitational wave detectors (Einstein Telescope in Europe and Cosmic Explorer in the US) will probe binary black hole mergers up to redshift 10
Here is the first published BBH from O3: GW190412. GW190412 is the first BBH merger for which we can undoubtedly say that the masses of
Metal-poor dwarf galaxies from the epoch of reionization (z~6 – 10) give a fundamental contribution to the population of massive (>30 Msun) binary black holes.
Curious about gravitational wave astrophysics? We are happy to post Michela Mapelli’s lectures on Gravitational Wave Astrophysics for the PhD School of Astronomy @ the
Are you looking for a black hole – neutron star binary with a massive black hole (>15 Msun)? Rastello et al. 2020 show that young
