Kip Thorne: "My Half-Century Romance with Caltech and with Black Holes, Wormholes, Time Travel, and Gravitational Waves"

The "warped side of the universe"—objects and phenomena made from warped space and time—was once mere speculation. In this Watson Lecture, Caltech physicist, alumnus (BS '62), and Nobel laureate Kip Thorne describes how he and colleagues transformed a portion of that warped side (black holes and gravitational waves) into observed phenomena, and what they have learned about another portion (wormholes and time travel).
