Siksika physicist Corey Gray

The Homestretch

What happens when two black holes collide? How do we measure the consequences? These are big questions, the kind Albert Einstein theorized about more than 100-years ago. Physicist Corey Gray works on these kinds of questions every day. He is the lead operator at the LIGO Hanford Observatory in Washington State. He's also part the team that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics. LIGO stands for: Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory. Today Corey Gray is in Calgary talking about the intersection between Albert Einstein and his own Blackfoot Heritage. He grew up on the Siksika Nation.
