Join the physics department 4-5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, in Room 115 Physics Building to check out the new LIGO room. Missouri S&T is the state’s only institution that belongs to the worldwide Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) scientific collaboration of researchers committed to detecting cosmic gravitational waves.

During the open house, see live data from the twin Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatories and talk to S&T researchers about the latest detections of colliding black holes and smashing neutron stars.
