New Discoveries in Science: Black Hole Blues and Neutron Star Heavy Metal

In 1916, Albert Einstein predicted the formation of gravity waves from massive celestial events. He also predicted these gravity waves would be too weak to measure. Amazingly, in September of 2015 at LIGO Hanford, cosmologists announced the detection of these gravity waves. With that discovery an entirely new field of study called gravitational wave cosmology was born. Join me in learning about gravity waves, the LIGO facility at Hanford, black hole collisions, neutron star collisions and the formation of gold in the universe.
