Welcome to the Center for Relativistic Astrophysics
The Center for Relativistic Astrophysics (CRA) is devoted
to interdisciplinary research and education linking
astrophysics, astroparticle physics, numerical relativity
and gravitational wave physics. Our research focuses on
extreme astrophysics such as mergers of black holes and
neutron stars, central engines of active galactic nuclei,
gamma ray bursts, and sources of the high energy cosmic
rays and neutrinos.
- Rita Garrido and Lorena Magana Zertuche take home second prizes for their indivudial posters at SPS Zone 6 Meeting
- Rita Garrido will attend physics graduate school at the University of Illinois next fall. Congrats!
- Prof. Martin Bojowald to give Spring 2013 AstrophysicsBuzz
- Prof. Tamara Bogdanovic wins prestigious Sloan Research Fellowship
- The CRA hosted a Mini-Symposium on Xtreme Astrophysics on August 27-28, 2012 to celebrate the 4th anniversery of the CRA and the opening of our visualization center.
- The IceCube collaboration, of which Georgia Tech is a member, has significantly constrained Gamma Ray Bursts as sources of cosmic rays as explained in a publication in Nature
- The Einstein
Toolkit consortium of which GaTech is a member has
released the fifth release of its toolkit code "Oested".
- The CRA has launched the public outreach series Astrophysics Buzz
