Synopsis: The thrilling inside story of the discovery that topped NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC’s list of “The top 20 Scientific Discoveries of the Decade” — the discovery of gravitational waves from deep space, 2015-1017, which revolutionized our understanding of the universe. Two discoveries two years apart, first the detection of two colliding black holes and then that of two crashing neutron stars and their spectacular light show opened up the 95% of the universe that had been dark to our existing observatories and space telescopes. It is the violent “warped side” of the universe predicted by Einstein — but never seen until now. Brian Greene, the theoretical physicist and best-selling author, said, “This discovery is the kind of achievement that happens only a few times a century.”
