This week The Seneca Scene welcomes Professor of Physics Steven Penn to discuss the discovery of gravitational waves and his work with LIGO on coating design for the interferometer detectors. Join us for this chat where we learn more about Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity, the collision of black holes and neutron stars, and what this discovery means for our understanding of the Big Bang.
