Sono-astronomy: When The Cosmos Does The Wave It Does Wave Gravity

Presented on March 29, 2016 by Prof. S. James Gates, Distinguished University Professor and Director of the Center for String and Particle Theory at the University of Maryland, this presentation was a non-technical introduction to the subject of gravitation waves.

The talk begins by using illustrative means to unveil the mathematics that Einstein used to reach the conclusion that waves of gravity must exist just as do waves of light.

CGI will be essential to show the accessibility to Einstein's suggestion that has recently been seen by the LIGO (laser interferometric gravity-wave observatory) facility.
