Welcome to LIGO Livingston
• February 10, 2020
LIGO Livingston is located in Livingston Louisiana, in a vast, humid, loblolly pine forest. Home to one of LIGO's two gravitational wave detectors, our facility operates in tandem with LIGO Hanford to listen for the faint whispers of gravitational waves from the most energetic events in the universe. LIGO Livingston is also home to LIGO's Science Education Center, which hosts schools, teacher workshops, tours and monthly Science Saturdays - where the public is invited to explore the science and engineering that underpin our quest to study the universe via gravitational waves.
Science Saturdays cancelled
News Release • May 4, 2020
LIGO Livingston Observatory is canceling its March, April and May Science Saturdays, as well as all other public events in order to reduce risks posed by COVID-19. This decision comes from following CDC guidelines to limit events involving large gatherings of people, especially in communal/small spaces. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we hope to resume our regular tour schedule in the future.
