Gravitational Waves:
Measuring Ripples in Space from a Billion Years Ago

 *How can you detect a collision that happened over a billion years ago?


*How can you measure something that changes a two-mile

long building by less than the width of an atom?


*Why do scientist think that this new technology will teach us things about our universe we could never have learned before?


Gary Felder is a favorite among the SciTech Café crowd and has enlightened us about dark matter, the Higgs-Boson, and the early universe. This month he will take us further into the depths of the uncharted universe. Gary is a professor of physics at Smith College.

SciTech Cafe events are open all those with curious minds regardless age and background.  Our events, prizes and snack are free, but donations are appreciated.
