Frontiers Lecture: Gravitational Waves - Messengers from the Warped Universe
by AMNH on
Some of the most violent events in the universe warp space-time and create gravitational waves. In this podcast, physicist Nergis Mavalvala discusses how we search for these ripples in space-time and decode the information they carry about events as far back in time as the first moments after the Big Bang.
This lecture took place at the Hayden Planetarium on April 18, 2016.
