In the video below, produced by the Science Philanthropy Alliance, Mavalvala talks about the instrument she created to measure the subatomic waves, and emphasizes that extraordinary discoveries in science can ripple through our lives in unexpected ways—but only if we invest as heavily in science this century as we did in the last. “I cannot think of any major discovery at any point in time that hasn’t enhanced our lives,” she says. What will come with the ability to detect gravitational waves? Mavalvala can’t wait to find out.
