Other scientists in attendance were theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawking, Jim Peebles from Princeton University, Alan Guth from MIT, Kip Thorne from Caltech, Lisa Randall from Harvard University, Barry Barish from LIGO, the gravitational wave observatory, a bevy of observational cosmologists and Maria Spiropulu from CERN near Geneva, Switzerland.
The existing LIGO detectors - two in Hanford, Washington, and the other in Livingston, Louisiana - have been searching for the waves without success since 2002, in partnership with the GEO600 detector in Hanover, Germany, and the Virgo detector in Cascina, Italy.
One of the many latest experimental attempts to find the waves that GR predicts is designated LIGO supported by the National Science Foundation.
While DARPA funds the development of devices that can't even be seen without a microscope, other scientists are putting optomechanics to work cooling some of the largest detectors in the world: the gravitational wave detectors of the LIGO project, built to search for gentle ripples in spacetime thought to be produced by (among other cosmic events) colliding black holes.
