ATNF Colloquium
Probing theories of gravity in the centre of the Milky Way
by Michael Kramer (MPIfR Bonn, Germany)
Abstract. The supermassive black hole in the centre of the Milky Way, Sgr A*, is an ideal target for testing the properties of black holes. A number of experiments are being prepared or conducted, such as the monitoring of stellar orbits, the search for radio pulsars or the recording of an image of the shadow of a event horizon. The talk gives an overview of these approaches and concentrates in particular on the prospects of using pulsars as probes, also in combination with event horizon imaging.
