<p><em>Kip Thorne has been at the forefront of black hole cosmology since the early 1960s, and currently heads one of the world's leading groups working in relativistic astrophysics. An important emphasis of his research is on black holes and gravitational waves, and developing the mathematics necessary to analyse these objects.</em></p>
<p><em>Professor Thorne gave a talk on "Warping Spacetime" and Rachel Thomas from the <i>Plus</i> team went along and spoke with him about it afterwards.</em><br clear="all" /></p><p><a href="http://plus.maths.org/content/catching-waves-kip-thorne" target="_blank">read more</a></p>http://plus.maths.org/content/catching-waves-kip-thorne#comments18Big Bangblack holecosmic microwave background radiationcurvature of spacegravitational wavegravitational wave detectorgravityinterferencelaser interferometrySchwarzchild singularitySat, 01 Dec 2001 00:00:00 +0000plusadmin2199 at http://plus.maths.org/content
