Henry Reich from the YouTube channel minutephysics has released a new video about gravitational wave basics. It explains how gravitational waves are generated, why we need very, very sensitive detectors like the Advanced LIGO instruments and how everybody can help searching for gravitational waves. You guessed it: by running Einstein@Home.
Watch, enjoy, and share the video available here on YouTube. We are looking forward to your feedback and discussions here in our message boards.
Benjamin for the entire Einstein@Home team
P.S.: Full disclosure: Einstein@Home supported Henry Reich/minutephysics by providing scientific information and funding in making the video.
