THE MAN WHO BROUGHT THE DISTANT WAVES

A key figure in the story of the discovery of gravitational waves was Prof. Ron Drever – whose great-grandparents came from Westray and Papay. His brother Dr Ian Drever tells about the man, and Prof. Martin Hendry of Glasgow University the research, while Patricia Long sets the family history scene.
