Abstract

The detection of gravitational waves from coalescing binary black hole systems by LIGO proves that space time is a Jelly that can vibrate, and we can listen to these vibrations as new way to explore the universe and understand fundamental physics. Another important source of gravitational waves are Core Collapse Supernovae, the explosive death of stars at least 10 times the mass of our Sun. My line of research is to detect these waves. As initial phase of my research I prepared a database of all the gravitational waveforms for exploding stars that have been calculated with numerical simulations. The web page I prepared allow to play the sound of more than thousand examples I am planning to share some of the expected sounds and describe their differences. I will also describe some of the further steps of my research.
