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.

"LSSU is a relatively small school and I believe for this reason I have received a better education. The close atmosphere as opposed to a larger university has provided me with an opportunity to become acquainted with my professors. The professors therefore have an opportunity to assist with problems fairly easily, especially in upper level classes. The classes are fairly small also which provides one on one conversations which is very helpful."
