Gravitational Waves

Aaron Jones & Sam Cooper, University of Birmingham

Gravitational waves were predicted by Einstein over 100 years ago and can be used to learn about some of the most exotic and difficult to observe objects in our universe, such as neutron stars and black holes. These waves are now being routinely detected by LIGO and Virgo, kilometre-scale observatories limited in their most sensitive region by fundamental quantum mechanics. Learn about these incredible detectors and how they are revolutionising astronomy with apps that connect microscopic universe vibrations in the cosmos directly to your phone!
