Prof. Dr. Brian G. Keating is an American cosmologist and a Chancellor’s Distinguished Professor of physics at the Center for Astrophysics & Space Sciences (CASS) in the Department of Physics at the University of California, San Diego. He is a public speaker, inventor, and expert in the study of the universe’s oldest light, the cosmic microwave background (CMB), using it to learn about the origin and evolution of the universe. Keating is a writer (Losing The Nobel Prize (2018) and Into the Impossible (2021)) and podcaster. Losing the Nobel Prize is the best-selling author of one of Amazon Editors’ ‘Best Non-fiction Books of All Time”. He has lectured on six of seven continents, and his lectures have been seen in person and online by over 5 million viewers. He also teaches astronomy to high school students since 2012 as part of his outreach work and has given presentations to over 3,000 K-12 students since 1994.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and highest-energy particle collider. It was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) between 1998 and 2008 in collaboration with over 10,000 scientists and hundreds of universities and laboratories, as well as more than 100 countries. It lies in a tunnel 27 kilometres (17 mi) in circumference and as deep as 175 metres (574 ft) beneath the France–Switzerland border near Geneva.

Gravitational waves are 'ripples' in space-time caused by some of the most violent and energetic processes in the Universe. Albert Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves in 1916 in his general theory of relativity. Einstein's mathematics showed that massive accelerating objects (such as neutron stars or black holes orbiting each other) would disrupt space-time in such a way that 'waves' of undulating space-time would propagate in all directions away from the source. These cosmic ripples would travel at the speed of light, carrying with them information about their origins, as well as clues to the nature of gravity itself. This video narrative tells the story of the history and legacy of LIGO from the genesis of the idea to the detection in September 2015.
