A film by Les Guthman about the new age of gravitational wave astronomy.
This animation shows the inspiral and merger of two black holes with masses and spins consistent with the GW170104 observation.
A mathematical simulation of the warped space-time near two merging black holes, consistent with LIGO's observation of the event dubbed GW170104.
