Gravitational Waves - Ripples of SpaceRiles, Keith - University of Michigan
Ann Arbor, MI - University of Michigan - 170 Dennison
Gravitational waves are minute disturbances of space itself, first predicted by Einstein. They are believed to arise both from violent events, such as the Big Bang or the collisions of black holes, and from quieter phenomena, such as the steady spin of a bumpy neutron star. Become familiar with the nature and sources of these tiny ripples of space, along with prospects for their direct discovery in the next few years.
