Kip S. Thorne

Nobel laureate Kip S. Thorne delivered the 2019 Robert M. Walker Distinguished Lecture titled ‘Exploring the Warped Side of the Universe with Gravitational Waves: From the Big Bang to Black Holes’.

Thorne’s work in theoretical physics examines gravitational waves, the Big Bang, and what these phenomena can tell us about the dynamics of the universe.
