Episode 6: Gravitational Waves with Chad Fifer and Chris Lackey
Posted Jan 9, 2012 by bn
In episode 6 We introduce and discuss the music of the spheres, gravitational waves. To help keep us on track, we’ve invited Chad Fifer and Chris Lackey from the H P Lovecraft Literary Podcast. Ponderous bodies out in the universe can cause ripples in spacetime, and we can detect these ripples using interferometers of monstrous length. With these astronomical ears, who can tell what horrible gibbering we will hear as it bubbles towards us across unknowable aeons away?!? Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn!!!
