Vernon Lecture

Discovery of an orbiting pulsar in 1974 led to increasingly precise measurements that firmly established the existence of the gravitational radiation first predicted by Albert Einstein.

 

Join Dr. Taylor as he describes the torturous path from a theory published in 1915 to the detection of gravitational waves a hundred years later, with many fascinating developments along the way.
