UofG BREAKING NEWS: GRAVITATIONAL WAVES DETECTED
For the first time (100 years after Einstein's prediction) LIGO Scientific Collaboration has observed ripples in spacetime called gravitational waves. These waves were produced by the collision of two black holes, which had been predicted but never observed, until now!
The University of Glasgow played a key role in this historic first detection with researchers working for decades to support the worldwide effort to detect gravitational waves. This confirms a major prediction of Albert Einstein's 1915 general theory of relativity and opens a new window onto the cosmos.
We're truly astounded by this discovery and the amazing minds behind it!
I’ve got some rocket seeds with me in space, and they will be returning to Earth in March. Schools can grow them for a special mission called with RHS Campaign for School Gardening and the UK Space Agency.

National Space Centre
The John Lewis advert is one of the signs we are fast approaching Christmas, and every year they try and tell a story which will capture our hearts.
This year's caught our attention as the advert features a little girl with a telescope, trying to send a present to the man on the Moon.
So we though we would offer some advice to the little girl in our latest Space Now! blog: http://www.spacecentre.co.uk/space-now/521-man-on-the-moon
