The Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation celebrated 10 years at RIT and the renovation of new space to accommodate the center’s growth on March 31. Researchers contributed to the first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes and are active members of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) scientific collaboration. New Frontiers in Gravitational Wave Astrophysics is an RIT Signature Interdisciplinary Research Area. Beverly Berger, from the National Science Foundation, attended the event and is shown here, seated, between Manuela Campanelli, center director standing at left, and Sophia Maggelakis, dean of the College of Science.
