The Leonard E Parker Center for Gravitation, Cosmology and Astrophysics is supported by NASA, the National Science Foundation, UW-Milwaukee College of Letters and Science, and UW-Milwaukee Graduate School. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of these organizations.
Research at the Center addresses problems in relativistic astrophysics, numerical relativity, gravitational-wave astronomy, cosmic-ray astrophysics, cosmology, star formation, compact objects, galaxy evolution, and many more
The Center for Gravitation and Cosmology is committed to furthering science education and public outreach through several programs. One of them is the Astronomy Remote Control Center at UWM, a group of students that participates in state-of-the-art research, searching for new pulsars remotely using the world's largest radio telescopes.
Another program that was developed at the Center, and that involves the participation of the public, is Einstein@Home. Volunteers from all around the world sign up their computers to process data from gravitational wave detectors. In this way, people from all around the world can get involved in cutting-edge research.
