The Montauk Observatory has teamed up with Stony Brook University and Brookhaven National Laboratory for a very special event on Wednesday, October 10.
At 6 PM, the Southampton Campus of Stony Brook University Chancellors Hall is hosting an informative lecture by 2017 Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Rainer Weiss, with his prize-winning project The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory. The LIGO project has been lauded for using gravitational waves to observe the space in a way that has revolutionized astrophysics.
Dr. Weiss will recount his own amusing history as well as his history with the LIGO project. This will be a free event, but reservations are required. Reserve your seat by emailing Laura Lyons at Laura.Lyons@stonybrook.edu or call her directly at 631-632-6873.
