Built to look for gravitational waves, the ripples in the fabric of space itself that were predicted by Einstein in 1915, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) is the most ambitious project ever funded by the National Science Foundation. We talk to two Caltech researchers to learn about how LIGO came to be.
JPL News: NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover Heads Toward Active Dunes
On its way to higher layers of the mountain where it is investigating how Mars' environment changed billions of years ago, NASA's Curiosity Mars rover will take advantage of a chance to study some modern Martian activity at mobile sand dunes.
Caltech researchers have discovered that intrinsic neural connections can be used by assistive devices to help the blind detect their environment without requiring intense concentration or hundreds of hours of training, allowing nonsighted people to acquire a new sensory functionality similar to vision.
