Predicted by Albert Einstein more than 100 years ago, gravitational waves are ripples in the fabric of space and time produced by some of the most extreme events in the cosmos: exploding stars, colliding black holes, even the Big Bang itself. 

Join University of Glasgow "black hole hunter" Professor Martin Hendry for a whistlestop tour of the exciting new field of gravitational-wave astrophysics: the groundbreaking discoveries that Martin and his colleagues are making, the remarkable engineering and technology that has enabled them and how these discoveries are helping up to unlock the mysteries of Einstein's universe.
