The researcher Roberto Emparan talks to Radio Sant Cugat about the latest detection of the international collaboration LIGO / Virgo, published at the end of June. In the program "El Pou", Emparan talks about the two gravitational wave detectors, LIGO and Virgo, that observed a curious object in August last year. This object has attracted the interest of very researchers, who do not know if it is the most massive neutron star ever detected or the lightest black hole that has been observed so far.

More information in the press release (in English) on the website of the Institute of Cosmos Sciences.
