Katherine Dooley and Marco Cavaglià: Gravitational waves: 100 years after Einstein

Gravitational waves are "ripples in the fabric of space time," arriving at the earth from cataclysmic events in the distant universe. They carry information about their dramatic origins and about the nature of gravity that cannot otherwise be obtained. This presentation followed by a Q&A will include discussions of how LIGO works and how gravitational waves are generated.
