The Invisible Colours of the Universe

Pablo Rosado and colleagues at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) produced a prize-winning web video in 2013, entitled The Invisible Colours of the Universe. Designed for the general public and freely available on the internet, it gives an overview of what gravitational waves are, what they can tell us about the Universe and how astronomers around the world are trying to detect them. The video won the Fast Forward Science prize in the 'junior scientists' category.
