This lecture is for a general audience.

Probing the Warped Side of the Universe with Numerical Simulations and Gravitational Waves Our Universe has a “warped side”: objects and phenomena that are made not from matter, but rather from warped space and warped time. Examples include black holes, cosmic strings and the big-bang singularity in which the Universe was born. Thorne will describe this mysterious warped side, the quest to simulate it using supercomputers, and the quest to observe it using gravitational waves
