The National Science Foundation recently released “Einstein's Messengers,” a 20-minute video on LIGO.
Steve Penn of the HWS physics department says this is certainly the best video yet made on the gravity wave project he has been involved with.
He advises that people can watch it online (if thay have realplayer) or by following the link, http://www.ligo.caltech.edu/einstein.ram.
At the end of the video is a pitch for folks to get involved by using Einstein@Home. Penn encourages the community to install Einstein@Home on computers, and has offered to help if people have any trouble with it.
