Gravitational waves have been predicted by Einstein's General Theory of Relativity for 100 years and have never been found. Scientists have been searching for them using the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) located in Hanford, Washington and Livingston, Louisiana.

The research and analysis from the LIGO detectors is carried out by a global group of scientists, including the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC) and many others.

Please join Tony Darnell, Harley Thronson and Alberto Conti as they discuss the latest research in Gravitational Waves from members of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration: Dr. Shane Larson (Northwestern Univ & Adler Planetarium)) and Dr. Jess McIver (Caltech)
