Gravitational-wave detectors

Getting involved

  • Gravity Spy – If you would like to help LIGO scientists better understand and characterize “glitches” in their detectors, have a look at this citizen science project, in which you can sift through the enormous amount of LIGO data to classify and maybe even detect new types of glitches.
  • Einstein Online – Online encyclopedia about Einstein's theories of relativity and their applications.
  • Black Hole Hunter – In this online game you search for gravitational waves and uncover for yourself Einstein's legacy.
  • Black Hole Master – This game is a light-hearted remake of an old classic (Pong), except with a cosmic twist!
  • Space Time Quest – Space Time Quest is a fun game developed by LIGO scientists and puts you in charge of designing your own gravitational wave detector.
