What is the link between the detection of the gravitational waves emitted by merging black holes and quantum mechanics? Eleonora Capocasa and Catherine Nguyen will guide us behind the usually closed curtains of the Virgo detector in Pisa and the Astroparticule et Cosmologie laboratory in Paris. They will illustrate the amazing connection between the quantic world and this new class of instruments to explore the Universe.
