Gravitational Waves- the New Cosmic Messenger

100 years ago Albert Einstein predicted in his general theory of relativity that there are ripples in space-time – gravitational waves. On September 14, 2015, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) successfully measured gravitational waves that were a result of the merger of two black holes. This event launched a new era of gravitational-wave astronomy. David Shoemaker served as Leader for the LIGO Project and is its Scientific Collaboration Spokesperson – elected to speak on behalf of gravitational wave science and affiliated scientists in 15 countries. The second observational period will end in Summer 2017. David will update on recent developments and the future for this avenue of research.
