The Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències, in collaboration with the Institute of Corpuscular Physics (IFIC), is organizing the free access conference on Sunday, October 7 at 7:00 p.m., with the following inscription: "Revealing the secrets of the universe with neutrinos, gamma rays and gravitational waves" by the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2015 and director of the Institute for the Study of Cosmic Rays of the University of Tokyo, Takaaki Kajita

In the universe there are many phenomena of high energies that can not be studied using visible light. For example, supernova explosions, which end the life of some stars, are easily visible with optical telescopes but the mechanism that produces them can only be understood if we observe them with neutrinos and gravitational waves. The origin of the matter of the universe could be intimately linked to the neutrinos and their small masses. In this talk, Takaaki Kajita will explain how the neutrino masses were discovered and review how gamma rays and gravitational waves can shed new light on our knowledge of the universe.
