The Lomonosov Moscow State University is proud to announce that journalists are invited to join Russian scientists on Thursday, 11 February, at 18:30 GMT +3 (15:30 UTC/GMT, 10:30 am US EST, 7:30 am US PST) at the Ramber & Co. Headquarters in Moscow for a status report on the effort to detect gravitational waves — or ripples in the fabric of space-time — using the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO).

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the first publication of Albert Einstein’s prediction of the existence of gravitational waves. With interest in this topic piqued by the centennial, the group will discuss their ongoing efforts to observe gravitational waves.
