Saturday Science: Einstein, gravitational waves, black holes and other matters

Science lovers of all ages are invited to learn about Brownian motion and how it limits the sensitivity of gravitational-wave detectors in a FREE discussion led by celebrated LSU physics and astronomy professor and world-renowned physicist Dr. Gabriela González at the Main Library at Goodwood at 1 p.m. Saturday, January 11.

A native of Argentina, Dr. González is a leader in gravitational wave research, including having served as the global spokesperson for the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) Scientific Collaboration, a program that includes more than 1,000 scientists around the world. In 2017, LIGO leaders were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics after proving predictions made by Albert Einstein nearly 100 years ago!
