Faculty and students played a role in LIGO's discovery and explain why gravitational waves are important.

Gravitational Waves Discovery Means Georgia Tech "Playing in the Big Leagues"

A team of 12 Georgia Tech faculty members, postdoctoral fellows and students have known since September what researchers told the world on Thursday: gravitational waves exist and have been detected for the first time ever. They played a pivotal role in the analysis of the observed signal. Once they received it, the Georgia Tech researchers compare it with hundreds of simulations they created prior to the wave arriving. It was the first time they could compare their predictions with something that nature actually created.
