Science writer Bartusiak introduces the science of gravity waves, or vibrations in space-time. Translating intricate physical concepts into accessible language, she describes how a gravity wave surges through the cosmos at the speed of light and what this phenomenon can tell us about the most violent events in the universe. Tracing the story of Einstein’s theory of relativity and the evolution of physicists’ views over the decades, she portrays the key players and puts a personal face on today’s experiments. The 12 chapters engage the metaphor of music to reveal how the sounds of exploding and rotating stars, chirps from the merger of two black holes, and even remnant echoes from the mighty jolt of the Big Bang itself comprise Einstein’s unfinished symphony still waiting to be heard.
