Ripples in Spacetime

Einstein, Gravitational Waves, and the
Future of Astronomy
Govert Schilling
Foreword by Martin Rees

"A lively and readable account of the [gravitational] waves'
discovery. . .Schilling underlines that this discovery is the
opening of a new window on the universe, the beginning
of a new branch of science. Astronomers will no longer be
limited to observing space through the waves of electricity
and magnetism (for example, visible light) entering
telescopes, but will be able to observe it through waves of
gravity. Galileo would have been amazed."
-Graham Farmelo, The Guardian
"A deliciously nerdy grand tour [of gravitational waves]."
-Barbara Kiser, Nature

subjects, and his enthusiasm for the material shows."

"QBism should be applauded as a breeding ground of ideas
for multiple disciplines including physics, philosophy, and
mathematics, and von Baeyer's book offers an account
accessible to all. . . It provides an outstanding introduction
to two of the key components of QBism (quantum theory
and subjective Bayesianism), and places the reader into the
mind of the QBist in a way that will aid the ongoing debate."
