Harry Collins, who has been watching the science of gravitational wave detection for over 40 years, offers a final, fascinating account of the unfolding of one of the most remarkable scientific discoveries ever made.

Predicted by Einstein in his theory of general relativity, gravitational waves carry energy from the collision or explosion of stars. It is only with the development of extraordinarily sensitive, highly sophisticated detectors that physicists can now confirm Einstein’s prediction.

Collins traces the detection, the analysis, the confirmation, and the public presentation and the reception of the discovery from beginning to end.
