Gravitational Waves - Ripples in Space

On September 14th 2015 two giant laser interferometers known as LIGO, the most sensitive scientific instruments ever built, detected gravitational waves from the merger of a pair of massive black holes more than a billion light years from the Earth. LIGO’s discovery confirmed the theoretical predictions of Albert Einstein, made a century earlier, and represented our first ever direct detection of black holes. LIGO estimated that the peak gravitational wave power radiated during the final moments of the black hole merger was about 50 times greater than the combined light power from all the stars and galaxies in the observable Universe. Join Professor Joe Giaime, Director of the LIGO Livingston Observatory in Louisiana, as he recounts the inside story of this remarkable discovery - hailed by many as the scientific breakthrough of the century.
