Slide Words: LIGO - Livingston, Louisiana

Slide Image: The image shows an aerial view of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) in Livingston, Louisiana, where it is located in an isolated area surrounded by countryside. LIGO consists of two interferometer detectors, one at Hanford, Washington, and this one in Louisiana. The gravitational waves emitted by events such as collisions between black holes and neutron stars will be detected by the detectors.
