'Gravitational Waves' - Predicted by Einstein's general theory of relativity in 1916 but, not observed until 2015,
gravitational waves are created by extremely dense objects - like neutron stars and black holes - orbiting in pairs.
The dynamics of these objects distorts space-time, creating ripples that can be detected with sensitive instruments.
Three American scientists received the 2017 Nobel prize in Physics for their roles in the discovery. Followed by
‘The Stars Tonight’ - using the Spitz projector on the 30 foot dome.
