Einstein's Gravity Playlist
A digital planetarium show exploring the ripples in space-time known as gravitational waves.
Join Lucia, a PhD student in physics, on an exploration of how gravitational waves are formed, how they move through the Universe and how scientists work to hear them.
Discover how a century after Albert Einstein first predicted the existence of gravitational waves in 1916, scientists finally detected these waves using incredibly precise laser technology on Earth.
In honour of this long-anticipated detection, the scientists who created the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2017.
