Meeting Notes 10/26/2016

2:20 PM - 3:30 PM
Presentation on Gravitational Waves
Two undergraduates from UW Bothell came over to talk about gravitational waves. They started by talking about space and how gravity and mass bend space. One of them who worked with LIGO talked about how it detects gravitational waves and the other talked about how you can use pulsars to detect gravitational waves. Finally, they mentioned a program called gravity spy which allows civillian scientists to help LIGO scientists classify all the information they are gathering.
