Virtual Lecture: Blackfoot Poetry from Einstein to Spacetime


Aug. 20, 2021


This lecture by Corey Gray, Caltech & LIGO, will be a journey of connecting Blackfoot language to gravitational wave astronomy. The LIGO/Virgo/KAGRA collaboration includes many people from around the world, all with their own stories. Corey Gray’s story will include a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s been like working at a land-based gravitational wave detector since 1998 (last century!). Additionally, he will share a “Top 3” list of his favorite detections, as well as the experience of a son having the opportunity to recruit his mother to work with him because of language—the language of spacetime and the Blackfoot people.
