Gravitational waves were first predicted by Albert Einstein in 1916 as a consequence of the general theory of relativity, which shows that alterations in the shape of concentrations of mass or energy have the effect of warping space-time, thereby causing distortions that propagate through the universe at the speed of light.
Finn is a founding member of the scientific collaboration that sets the science goals and carries-out the science mission of LIGO, which includes the detection of gravitational waves and their use as a new kind of telescope for viewing the universe.
He also is director of the Physics Frontier Center for Gravitational Wave Physics, which was created by the National Science Foundation to develop the scientific and technical expertise needed to realize the promise of gravitational-wave detection.

In Anfinsen's early work, he and Steinberg studied the non-uniform labelling in newly synthesized proteins - a technique with later permitted Dintzis, Canfield and others to determine that proteins are synthesized sequentially from the amino-terminal and in vivo, and to calculate the rate at which amino acids are polymerized.
He is active as a member of the Board of Governors of the Weizrnann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, and was elected President of the American Society of Biological Chemists for the Academic Year 1971-72.

 How to Become a Wireless Operator (1916)
The answer to these questions is simply that wireless or radio telegraphy represents one of the latest developments of electrical science, and that it offers both amusement and profit to whoever cares to work upon its problems.
Before beginning to tune, the operator must have made sure that his connections are properly fastened, that his aerial and ground leads are correctly arranged, that the telephones are in good condition and that the detector is adjusted to a sensitive point.
Each time the receiver is operated they should be tried out by a "test buzzer" equipment such as described in the December, 1916, article of this series.

 Department of Geosciences, Stony Brook University
In 1984, with support from the Instrumentation and Facilities Program of the NSF Division of Earth Sciences and the University at Stony Brook, Liebermann and Professor Donald Weidner acquired and developed two types of multi-anvil, high-pressure equipment for the new Stony Brook High-Pressure Laboratory.
These facilities were the first of their kind in the geoscience community in the United States and include a DIA-type cubic anvil apparatus (SAM 95) and uniaxial split-sphere apparatus with a 2,000-ton hydraulic press (USSA-2000).
The latter apparatus is now being utilized for synthesis experiments to pressures of 250 kbar and temperatures of 2500 K, whereas SAM-85 is being interfaced with the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) at Brookhaven National Laboratory for in situ X-ray experiments.
