Traveling at the Speed of Thought: Einstein and the Quest for Gravitational Waves
Princeton University Press, 15. apr. 2007 - 319 sÝur
Since Einstein first described them nearly a century ago, gravitational waves have been the subject of more sustained controversy than perhaps any other phenomenon in physics. These as yet undetected fluctuations in the shape of space-time were first predicted by Einstein's general theory of relativity, but only now, at the dawn of the twenty-first century, are we on the brink of finally observing them.
