Q&A Session with Dominic Wallimanby Dominic Walliman
I'm Dominic Walliman and I create videos for the Domain of Science YouTube Channel. I love science, and really like finding ways of explaining it to others because learning something new is the best, and science has a lot of mind-blowing stuff in it.
I have done a lot of quantum physics in the past, I did a PhD in quantum device physics and worked at a quantum computer company called D-Wave. As well as making videos I write children's books about science with Professor Astro Cat.
Everything you need to know about gravitational waves. In February 2016 scientists announced the first detection of gravitational waves by humans on Earth. This was a huge, world changing, discovery. The gravitational waves were caused by a pair of colliding black holes 1.3 billion light years away 1.3 billion years ago. This video summaries all the of the mind blowing facts about the gravitational waves and describes LIGO, the incredibly sensitive telescope that detected them.
