Find out about gravitational waves and the latest news about their detection from one of the visiting scientists at LIGO, Kai Staats. The announcement was made this week of a fourth detection, so it's great timing to speak to someone in the know. The Laser Interferometry Gravitational-wave Observatory has one of a handful of instruments on Earth that can detect these minute shifts in the very fabric of the universe. This is advanced science, and changes our understanding of the cosmos. Kai completed a MSc in Applied Mathematics at AIMS / UCT. How now works a freelance researcher and professional filmmaker. See link for his latest documentary about LIGO and gravitational waves.
