The universe speaks, Clark alumnus hears
Cody Messick ’10 is part of a scientific discovery supporting Albert Einstein’s prediction of the existence of gravitational waves
Clark alumnus Cody Messick spends most of his waking hours out of this world. He’s part of a team of scientists that confirmed the sound of space-time compressing, cosmic events that occurred one billion years ago when black holes collided. Three of the top scientists on the project won a Nobel Prize in physics in October 2017.
