|Visit LIGO on November 1, 2014 for a Family Open House All LIGO all afternoon -- a free-admission LIGO-fest with dozens of hands-on activities and experiments, tours of the Observatory and some fun with liquid nitrogen. All ages, including those who travel in strollers, are welcome to view LIGO's upgrade progress and make waves of various types. Drop in any time between 1:30 and 4:30 PM. We recommend a good look at LIGO's Web-viewable driving directions before you come. Cell phone direction finders usually don't recognize our address.|
|LIGO makes the S5 data set publicly available for analysis. Say hello to the LIGO Open Science Center (LOSC)! Through the LOSC Web site, the public can download data from LIGO's fifth science run (S5 -- the fall of 2005 through the fall of 2007). LOSC tutorials and tools will help users understand the data stream and perform analyses. The S5 release represents the first in an ongoing program of LIGO releases in future years. Check the LOSC Web site for full information about LIGO's new venture in public data.|
|LIGO Magazine, Issue Five Read issue five (left) to learn about the milestone "First Lock" of the Advanced LIGO detector at the Livingston Observatory. LIGO Magazine comes to you from the international LIGO Scientific Collaboration and delivers twice-yearly news of the worldwide effort to detect gravitational waves along with interesting features from related areas of astrophysics.|
