Abstract:
A general level what, why and How Ligo talk, I forgot the abstract that I sent them

I posted a no movie version
This is still a work in progress

Gravitation Wave Astronomy

This year on the 100th anniversary of Einstein's prediction of the existence of gravitational radiation, the LIGO collaboration announced the first direct observation of this radiation. I will describe the instrument used to make this measurement and some of the challenges encountered in building it. Then I will talk about some of the science which will be done using it and where we plan to go in the future.
