The LIGO Hanford Observatory in Washington is part of a network of ground-based detectors working in unison to identify and measure gravitational waves. Scientists at RIT's Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation sift through data looking for these waves and, also, produce simulations of gravitational waves that can be used as blueprints for some of the signals.
