Brian Greene and Barry Barish: World Science U Q+A Session

Nobel Laureate Barry Barish and Brian Greene discuss the quickly-evolving world of gravitational waves detections—from the first detection on September 14, 2015 to its public announcement five months later through the many detections since. Join them for a conversation about the shuttered Superconducting Super Collider, the origins of LIGO, and hopes for future detectors.
