OLLI Presentation on Discovery of Gravitational Radiation, Using Video by Barry Barish

This is my one hour long Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UC Irvine presentation on the Detection of Gravitational Waves, using the YouTube talk by earlier LIGO leader Prof. Barry Barish at Cal Tech.

I start with a short description of a black hole, and the orbits around it, then link to the YouTube talk.  To stay within the hour, I drop the discussion, some history of Einstein’s papers, and spectral graphs.
