Gravitational Waves

For the first time, scientists have observed the warping of space-time generated by two black holes a billion light years from Earth. The detection of gravitational waves has forever changed the study of physics and astronomy.

In this video, gravitational waves expert Eugenio Coccia, University of Rome Tor Vergata, and Francesco Arneodo, NYUAD head of physics, talk about what happened, and what's next for science.

The Conversation is a video series that presents short talks by NYUAD researchers on topics ranging from Astrophysics to Art History.
