A Physics Today Best Book of the Year A Forbes "For the Physics and Astronomy Lover in Your Life" Selection "Succinct, accessible, and remarkably timely... This book is a rare find." -Physics Today "Belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in learning the scientific, historical, and personal stories behind some of the most incredible scientific advances of the 21st century." -Forbes The detection of gravitational waves has already been called the scientific breakthrough of the century. Einstein predicted these tiny ripples in the fabric of spacetime over a hundred years ago, but they were only recently perceived directly for the first time. Ripples in Spacetime is an engaging account of the international effort to complete Einstein's project, capture his elusive ripples, and launch an era of gravitational-wave astronomy that promises to explain, more vividly than ever before, our universe's structure and origin. "Schilling's deliciously nerdy grand tour takes us through compelling backstory, current research, and future expectations." -Nature "A lively and readable account... Schilling underlines that this discovery is the opening of a new window on the universe, the beginning of a new branch of science." -Graham Farmelo, The Guardian
