New minutephysics video about gravitational waves and Einstein@Home

Henry Reich from the YouTube channel minutephysics has released a new video about gravitational wave basics. It explains how gravitational waves are generated, why we need very, very sensitive detectors like the Advanced LIGO instruments and how everybody can help searching for gravitational waves. You guessed it: by running Einstein@Home.

Watch, enjoy, and share the video available here on YouTube. We are looking forward to your feedback and discussions here in our message boards.

Cheers,
Benjamin for the entire Einstein@Home team

P.S.: Full disclosure: Einstein@Home supported Henry Reich/minutephysics in making the video by providing scientific information and funding.

New minutephysics video about gravitational waves and Einstein@H

Awesome, I already subscribe to minute physics so I'll have to watch when I get home.

Will E@H be processing data from LISA Pathfinder along with LIGO, Arecibo and Fermi?

On Free DC stats I see an increase in Teams, Users and new teams/users since the video was posted. Hopefully it all translates to more production of the project.
