The warped side of the universe

Professor Kip Stephen Thorne, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena

Professor Kip Stephen Thorne has made pioneering contributions to the study of black holes and gravitational waves. He has spearheaded the efforts to look experimentally for gravitational waves, which could tell about violent events in the universe. Thorne has worked closely with John Wheeler, who was a co-author to Niels Bohr’s groundbreaking article on nuclear fission in 1939.
