A news conference will be held Thursday at 9:30 a.m. CT at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for a status report on the effort to detect gravitational waves – or ripples in the fabric of spacetime – using the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO). We will begin with a live-stream from the National Press Club in Washington, followed by a Q&A session with University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee scientists who have played a lead role in the multi-national search for gravitational waves. The local news conference will be held in room 1150 at the Kenwood Interdisciplinary Research Complex, on the corner of Maryland and Kenwood Avenues.
