Abstract

The 2017 Nobel Prize winners were announced beginning the week of October 2. The Physics Prize for 2017 was awarded to three individuals: Rainer Weiss, Barry C. Barish, and Kip S. Thorne, for their work on LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory. In episode 7 of crisscrossing Science, Chris Gaiser (professor of biology at Linfield College) and Mike Crosser (professor of physics at Linfield College) discussed this experiment and the science behind it. Given the Nobel announcement, they recorded a new introduction to the original episode. (To hear the original episode, click the link in the Related Resource field below.)
