Title: WAVES OF THE FUTURE
Movie ID: VT3810
Movie Number: 3810
Description: Gravity waves, as yet undetected but predicted by Albert Einstein, may contain the answers to many questions about the universe. Soviet scientist Leonid Grishchuk and American scientist Kip Thorne describes their attempts to prove the existence of the waves. The episode also visits a prototype of a gravity-wave detector and describes the three-mile-long full-scale version, planned for construction in the late 1990s. Until it and others like it are in operation, scientists must be content with "telescopes of the mind." Also witness a meeting of minds between Grishchuk and noted scientist Stephen Hawking.

"The opportunity at LSSU to do research is amazing. This past summer I motored through coves and islands with Prof. Garvon surveying water birds for the affects of pollution. I spent the other part of my summer on the shore of Lake Superior monitoring nests of the endangered Piping Plover."
