Predicted a century ago by Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity, gravitational waves were observed last year for the first time. This discovery not only serves as another verification of Einstein's theory but it also ushered in a new era for Astronomy.

This lecture will explain how the detection of gravitational waves resembles listening more than seeing and how the merging of two black holes was 'heard', a discovery that most likely could never have been made with conventional telescopes.

We will also look at amazing technology of laser interferometry that made their detection possible and the development of quantum technologies that will make future detectors even more sensitive.
