Gravitational Wave Astronomy from Space: Observing the Universe through a new window (High School)

August 9, 2017


A Summer STEM Teacher Workshop at NASA, Greenbelt, MD.

Einstein’s theory of Relativity, published back in 1915, primarily applies to particles as they accelerate, particularly due to gravitation. Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves, which had never been directly detected until now. Come and learn how the presence of actual gravitational waves were detected. Learn about wave motion and relativity.
