Gravitational Waves - the New Cosmic Messenger

On September 14, 2015, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) measured gravitational waves from the merger of two black holes, kicking off a new era of gravitational-wave astronomy. This was the first direct measurement of gravitational waves - ripples in space-time that Albert Einstein predicted 100 years ago in his general theory of relativity. A second observing period will end in Summer 2017. David will update on recent developments and a give a roadmap for the future.
