Einstein, gravitational waves, black holes and other matters with Gabriela González

More than a hundred years ago, Einstein predicted that there were ripples in the fabric of space-time traveling at the speed of light: gravitational waves. Join LIGO team physicist Gabriela González, as she describes first-ever registered loud gravitational wave signal created more than a billion years ago by the merger of two black holes, and the gravity-bright future of the field in her Discover Science Lecture on October 17.
