Ripples in the curvature of space-time - 'Gravitational waves' - are produced by some of the most energetic and dramatic phenomena in our universe, including black holes and supernovae. This talk will explore how they were recently discovered about 100 years after they were predicted, and what the future of this new era in astronomy might look like.
