  • Dr. David Reitze on Discovering Gravitational Waves - Proof of Black Holes

    The discovery of gravitational waves earlier this year - something predicted a century ago in theory by Albert Einstein - may usher in an entirely new type of physics that could completely change the way we understand the universe, said Dr David Reitze at Caltech. It may also allow us to find ways to listen in to the echoes of the very foundation of the universe in the immediate aftermath of the Big Bang. Reitze is the chief scientist in charge of the search for gravitational waves, a 25 year-project jointly managed by Caltech and MIT that involved some 1,000 scientists working in the US and around the world. He talked to the Los Angeles World Affairs Council on Wednesday April 21st about the thrill he and his colleagues felt when they first heard the "beeps that went around the world".
