'Chasing the Waves' is a live, musical show which tells the story of what has been hailed as "one of the greatest scientific discoveries of the century": the detection of gravitational waves. Discover how Glasgow scientists helped detect these ripples in space-time, which were first predicted by Albert Einstein over 100 years ago. Blending comedy, music, demos and visuals, this is physics as you’ve never seen it before! Explore a new way of looking at the universe, starting right here in Glasgow.
Each show will be followed by a careers and science Q&A with real-life physicists and a chance to get hands-on with fun activities.
‘Chasing the Waves’ is produced by Glasgow Science Festival and funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council. Shows will take place at the University of Glasgow and the Kelvin Hall.
Recommended for S4-6.
