Warmest congratulations to Annual Reviews contributing authors, Rainer Weiss and Kip S. Thorne, who share the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics with Barry C. Barish.
This trio of US scientists won for “decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves” which were first theorized by Albert Einstein.
We’ve made these two articles, Gravitational-Wave Astronomy and Measurements of the Cosmic Background Radiation from the Annual Review of Astronomy and Astrophysics and other related content, freely available to read in recognition of this significant contribution to science.
