Podcast Extra: Gravitational Waves

Download Episode!

For anyone who’s still a little fuzzy or confused by the enormity of the recent detection of gravitational waves by the LIGO facility, we’ve recorded a special podcast extra to shed some light on the impossibly complex world of General Relativity, interferometry detectors and gravitational waves themselves.

This podcast extra should explain in simple terms:

  • What gravitational waves are
  • Why they’re so important
  • How they were detected
  • What this means for the future of physics & astronomy

With special thanks to LIGO, the National Science Foundation and Cardiff University’s School of Physics and Astronomy.
