This award-winning documentary on LIGO, NSF's Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory, examines how LIGO is spearheading the new field of gravitational wave astronomy and opening a whole new window on the universe. LIGO's exquisitely sensitive instruments may ultimately take scientists farther back in time than ever before, catching, perhaps, the first murmurs of the universe in formation.
