But in 2015, our ability to understand the University achieved a major milestone, when ripples in Spacetime itself – instead of light – told the tale of an ancient, cataclysmic collision between black holes. The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) is an experimental system of almost unbelievable sensitivity. Using interferometer arms four kilometers long, it can detect changes in […]
