The Faraway, NearbyPaula Froehle

A lot can be said about the tragic life of Joseph Weber, the misunderstood founder of gravitational wave research. Until his death, he remained a pariah in his field of research and recognition did not come until 16 years after his passing. Through interviews with Nobel laureate Kip Thorne and psychologist Steven Pinker, among others, we learn, like Weber, to look at the world differently.
