2017 Nobel prize for physics for gravitational wave researchers: This book offers highly topical insights and overview with the latest research results! Discovery of gravitational waves is a scientific sensation. For the first time since Albert Einstein's prediction these gravitational signals could be measured: When Black Holes collide, the entire universe quakes. The proof of by now half a dozen space-time vibrations is another triumph for the theory of relativity and a great success of technology. These achievements have now been acknowledged with the 2017 Nobel price for physics. From Einstein to the Big Bang and beyond: gravitational waves have opened up a new era in astrophysics.
