Frontiers of Astronomy: A Space-time Symphony of Gravitational Waves

Submit Event Upload

On February 11, 2016, scientists announced the first detection of gravitational waves, a Nobel Prize-level achievement and a profound moment for humankind. Prior to that discovery, the only way we learned about the distant Universe is through light we were able to see. Light revealed that we live in an extraordinarily beautiful expanding and accelerating Universe that is full of exoplanets, stellar explosions, other galaxies, and dark matter that pervades everything. And now, humanity has observed the ripples in space-time caused by the motion of massive objects like black holes; these gravitational waves have opened a whole new window to the Universe of things we can't see with light—things that could change our understanding of the Cosmos.
