Gravitational wave graphs are like fingerprints that can give us clues about where the gravitational wave came from and what caused it. In this activity, you will learn the basics of gravitational waves and what their graphs can look like. Then you will attempt to match gravitational wave "fingerprint" graphs to identify what caused them.
This activity will premiere on Friday, April 23 at 9 a.m.
These are the materials you will need to follow along with this activity.
