Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. This book gives you a more in-depth look at gravitational waves, which are a fluctuation in the curvature of spacetime which propagates as a wave, traveling outward from the source. Read about the history, sources of gravitational waves, radiation from other sources, astrophysics and gravitational waves, Einstein equations, and everything in between. Project Webster represents a new publishing paradigm, allowing disparate content sources to be curated into cohesive, relevant, and informative books.

We believe books such as this represent a new and exciting lexicon in the sharing of human knowledge.
