As outlined in the preceding talk by Dr Thorne, there are many possible sources of gravitational radiation, ranging from the interactions of supermassive black holes to supernova explosions of stars. Detection of such radiation could give information which cannot be obtained otherwise, for example on events occurring in the cores of stellar systems, and could also provide important clues on the existence, nature and behaviour of black holes.
