LIGO and the Quest for Gravitational Waves

LIGO and the Quest for Gravitational Waves
Original hosted in "ISE", contributed by Emmanuel Chaniotakis on 19/02/2016
In this activity students will follow step by step the discovery of gravitational waves! They will be exposed to the modern theory of Gravity of Einstein in a pedagogically consistent manner and then investigate the parameters needed in order to build a gravitational wave detector sensitive enough to measure tiny signals such as this measured by the LIGO experiment in September 2015.
