The Future of Gravity Wave Detection
In February of 2016, scientists announced the detection of Gravitational Waves. These disturbances in the fabric of Space-Time were predicted by Albert Einstein a century ago, but had never been directly observed. As epic as this discovery was, it was still the first step towards observing the universe in an entirely different way.
A team of Australian scientists led by physicist and gravitational wave pioneer Prof. David Blair of the University of Western Australia has developed two new devices that will allow us to view Gravity Waves in much finer detail, and could revolutionise the field of Gravity Wave detection. Prof. Blair was kind enough to join us to tell as all about it.
