Using Radar Satellites to Study Icelandic Volcanoes and Glaciers

Taking advantage of airborne radar tools, Caltech researchers provide two possible explanations for a series of unusual earthquakes seen in Iceland during a period of volcanic activity that started in August last year.

Gravitational Waves—Sooner Than Later?

Built to look for gravitational waves, the ripples in the fabric of space itself that were predicted by Einstein in 1916, 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.
