On Thursday, a team of scientists announced they had detected gravitational waves, ripples of energy across space-time sparked by the merging of two black holes. Northeastern physicist Pran Nath discusses the impact of the major breakthrough.
A recent paper by Pran Nath, Distinguished Professor of Physics, was chosen as Paper of the Week on Physica Scripta, Journal of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
The College of Science would like to congratulate Gregory Peim and Catherine Matassa.
Gregory Peim is a graduate student pursuing a doctoral degree in physics, conducting research under the direction of Professor Pran Nath.
