Fri. 9/23 - What "Gravitational Waves" are, how we proved them, and what they can tell us about the Universe now and in the future, plus work-time!
Today we started with a segment from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, entitled "Gravitational Waves come to the Late Show". Colbert interviews Physcist Brian Green about the recently discovery of "gravitational waves" which were theorized by Einstein some 100 years ago, but until recently could not be proven. It gives great insight into how gravity works, how we are and will be proving/seeing things in the Universe. (embedded below, give it a watch!)
Then we had some choice work-time on. (see slide below for more info).
Have a great weekend!
