Oral 11: Maria Stokes – The Making of Method

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Hugh Cagle

I juxtapose two astrophysical developments: early uses of optical telescopes by Galileo in the seventeenth century and the introduction of gravitational wave astronomy, focusing on the LIGO-Virgo Collaboration. I examine Galileo’s writings and provide a survey of LIGO-Virgo gravitational wave detectors. This comparative study evaluates the development of scientific method which carries implications for many fields.
