I'm not a physicist, but I'd play one on T.V. (if it meant a steady gig ) Actually, I'm a technical writer. Nothing major, but if you've used a Sony laptop in the last 4 or 5 years you've seen my work (such as it is).
That is a picture of me about 10 years or so ago. I was in a fan-film called The Prisoner and the Time
Lord[/url]. If you know The Prisoner[/url], you have good taste. If you know the Time Lord[/url] reference, you probably live in the U.K. or watch too much public television in America. If you know both (like me), you are a geek. Be proud, Geeks!
The reason I'm interested in this project is not so much about what might be learned about the objects that may produce the hoped for waves, but what may be learned about the structure of the medium of space itself. I'll let the physicists with the requisite command of the jargon explain that when the questions start flying in: "How did those waves get here?", "What does the detection of these waves show about the underlying structure of the universe", or "Why is there air?".
