Get an up-close and personal take on the several Gravitational Waves discoveries that have changed science for the better. Starting with the discovery of gravitational waves in 2015, the LIGO-VIRGO collaboration and partners have broken records in physics, astronomy, and interferometry – with still more to come. We will talk about what went into the Laser Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory (LIGO) that discovered the first gravitational wave, GW150914, from theoretical, engineering, and computer simulation viewpoints, plus some of the major discoveries that have accompanied the detentions since.
