Subodh Patil & Anaïs Rassat - Interview on Detection of Gravitational Waves
On Thursday, February 11, a team of scientists from the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, short for Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, announced that they had heard and recorded the sound of two black holes colliding a billion light-years away, a fleeting chirp that fulfilled the last prediction of Einstein’s general theory of relativity.

At the very same time, our "own" particle physicist Subodh Patil was on stage, talking about how to achieve breakthrough based on years of scientific research.
We thought the coincidence was too beautiful not to invite him back on stage, along with another researcher and long-time lifter Anaïs Rassat, and tell us more about this groundbreaking discovery!
Don't hesitate to also check out the official Einstein 100 website mentioned by Anaïs during the interview.
Recorded on February 11, 2016, in Geneva.
