Chasing the Waves

Chasing the Waves is an innovative project originally funded by the STFC that has brought together scientists, Glasgow Science Festival, actors and musicians for a truly collaborative venture.

This live, musical show tells the story of what has been hailed as "one of the greatest scientific discoveries of the century": the detection of gravitational waves.

Discover how Glasgow scientists helped detect these ripples in space-time, which were first predicted by Albert Einstein over 100 years ago. Blending comedy, music, demos and visuals, this is physics as you’ve never seen it before!  Explore a new way of looking at the universe, starting right here in Glasgow.
