This talk will give a general description about the LISA space mission of ESA / NASA and one of its most interesting sources. Gravitational capture of an object of stellar mass through a supermassive black hole allows us to map space-time around these black holes. This phenomenon corresponds to having a camera taking hundreds of thousands of photos of spacetime, from all angles and distances of the black hole. In addition, we can extract with minimum errors parameters such as the mass of the black hole and its spin without doing any modeling, since it is a direct reading.
Speaker: Pau Amaro Seoane, researcher Ramón y Cajal of the Institute of Space Sciences of the CSIC, Barcelona.
Place and date: Hall of Degrees of the ETSID of the UPV, on Wednesday, December 4 at 12:30.
