Deeper, Wider, Sharper: Next-Generation Ground-based Gravitational-Wave Observations of Binary Black Holes
Next-generation observations will revolutionize our understanding of binary black holes and will detect new sources, such as intermediate-mass black holes. Primary science goals include: Discover binary black holes throughout the observable Universe; Reveal the fundamental properties of black holes; Uncover the seeds of supermassive black holes.
