Documentary

The hunters – the detection of gravitational waves

Documentary about the AEI contributions to Advanced LIGO's first direct detection of gravitational waves.

The hunters – the detection of gravitational waves

September 14, 2015, is a day for the history text books: 100 years after Albert Einstein's predictions, both Advanced LIGO detectors detected gravitational waves for the first time. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics in Hannover and Potsdam in Germany were the first to see the signal. This movie tells the story of their significant contributions to this ground-breaking discovery.
