On this special pledge drive edition of the Perpetual Notion Machine, longtime PNM’er Matthew Zmudka, and PNM newcomer Jake Walters describe how important science is to society and people, and why PNM is so important in letting people know what is going on in science. To this end, Matthew explains the recent and major discovery of gravitational waves by the LIGO detectors. And next month we have a UW-Madison astrophysicist to further explain the significance of this discovery. We couldn’t do it without the support of our listeners!
