Chasing the Waves” is an award-winning show that shares the story of what has been hailed as one of the greatest scientific discoveries of the century: the detection of gravitational waves. Discover how scientists helped detect these ripples in space-time, first predicted by Albert Einstein over 100 years ago. Blending comedy, music and visuals, this is physics as you’ve never seen it before! Explore a new way of looking at the universe.

This is a unique, award-winning show, originally funded for Glasgow Science Festival. Discover how Glasgow scientists helped make one of the biggest discoveries of the century, with this exclusive performance at DL.

A charge of £3.00 per person will be applied. This can be paid on the night on the door, by cash or by cheque payable to STFC.
