Oxford May Music: Gravitational Waves


Prof. Stefan Hild on Einstein’s Symphony of the Universe

For several decades scientists around the globe have worked hard towards the their dream of finding gravitational waves, tiny ripples in the fabric of space-time, which were first predicted by Albert Einstein 100 years ago. In February 2016 the long waiting had an end when the first observation of gravitational waves in the LIGO gravitational wave detectors made headlines around the world. Scientist had found the signature of two black holes which collided 1.4 billion years ago in a galaxy far, far away. This was the first time we could listen to the sound of the Universe, - Einstein's Symphony!
