When is black also blue? Well, in physics: The beat of black holes hitting spacetime can be much like a drummer’s beat, distinctive and true like a blues song.
In this month’s Perimeter Public Lecture—the series that brings high science to the masses at the Perimeter Institute stage in Waterloo, Ont.— renowned physicist and author Janna Levin will discuss those gravitational waves and the music they make. Watch a trailer for the lecture here.
As we do every month, Maclean’s is proud to be able to broadcast a live-stream of this talk. Watch it below at 7 pm ET on Wednesday, May 3.
