The prediction of gravitational waves, which are the ripples of space and time, is a major theory that many scientists are working hard to confirm. Emmanuel Fonseca talks about how the detection of these waves would uncover previously invisible objects such as black holes and cosmic strings, and may have further important implications.

Emmanuel, a 2nd year PhD student in Physics and Astronomy, gives an informative introduction to gravity, gravitational waves, and what research into this concept could mean for the world. In his talk he also speaks to the importance of communicating scientific research and science education.
