The Leading Edge:
The Final Mission from Einstein - Find Gravitational Waves

Einstein and his General Theory of Relativity

It's been 100 years since Einstein published the General Theory of Relativity. Research is taking place around the world to achieve what has been called his final mission: To detect gravitational waves. In today's program we'll learn what they are and visit KAGRA, a gravitational-wave observatory that is being built in the Kamioka mines. KAGRA will use 3-kilometer-long tunnels and cryogenic sapphire mirrors to detect faint gravitational waves that are generated 700 million light-years away.

A single organism. These ferociously hungry creatures can multiply into groups numbering in the hundreds of millions. What can stop them? Join us as we uncover the mysteries of the vanishing forests of the sea.
