watched Woodford's talk

Catherine Woodford presented Gravitational Waves: The Sirens of the Universe to the RASC Toronto Centre on Wednesday. Sirens. Nice. I totally missed this event. I would have liked to hear her speak and have an opportunity to ask questions. Happily I watched the raw video feed. I particularly enjoyed her remarks on the binary neutron star observations which, at the time, I didn't pay much attention to. But that observation was as ground-breaking as the black hole merger detections. An accessible and entertaining talk.
