The team behind the first direct detection of gravitational waves has been awarded the Prime Ministers Prize for Science.
Gravitational waves were predicted by Albert Einstein in 1915 and over 100 years later the team’s work contributed to the LIGO project which won the Nobel Prize for Physics.
Professors Susan Scott and David McClelland from the ANU, Emeritus Professor David Blair from the University of WA and Professor Peter Veitch from the University of Adelaide were joint winners.
