Prof Harry Collins: "Sociology of scientific knowledge and gravitational waves"
Following the much-lauded detection of gravitational radiation by LIGO (The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory), announced earlier this year, Harry Collins will reflect on his near half-century of fieldwork on the gravitational wave community and assess the closure of the gravity-wave story and its implications for the sociology of scientific knowledge.
