Albert Einstein first predicted the existence of the ripples in spacetime known as gravitational waves in 1916. In this show, viewers follow Lucia, a Ph.D. student in physics, on an exploration of how gravitational waves are formed, how they move through the universe, and how scientists like her work to hear them. Einstein’s Gravity Playlist was created through a collaboration between four Montana State University institutions: the eXtreme Gravity Institute, the Department of Physics, the School of Film and Photography, and the School of Music.
