Detectors See Gravitational Waves from Dawn of Universe
This image shows an array of the 512 superconducting detectors used on the BICEP2 telescope at the South Pole. The technology was key to detecting the effects of gravitational waves associated with the early epoch of our universe known as inflation.
The detectors and related technology were developed and produced at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.
